    Family Tree: Best Kept Secret

    Family Tree: Best Kept Secret

    by Ann M. Martin

    Francie likes to think of herself as a pretty normal girl. Her parents are happily married. Her family lives in a nice house in Princeton, New Jersey. Her best friend lives nearby.

    But having a good life isn't the same as having a perfect one. Underneath her normal life is another, harder one, full of family secrets and personal challenges. When something truly horrible happens to Francie, she takes on a secret that's bigger than any she's ever had before—and it's one she decides to keep to herself, no matter what.

About This Book

Elizabeth and Tara*Starr are totally different. Tara* Starr wears glitter and sequins, loves to be the center of attention, and is the only child of young parents who are taking a long time to grow up. Elizabeth is shy and quiet, hates being the center of attention, and lives in a house in which possessions are more important than feelings. So of course they're best friends.

Now that Tara*Starr has moved away, the girls continue their friendship through letters. Then life changes for both of them. While Tara*Starr's family settles down, Elizabeth's falls apart. Their letters chronicle these events, and the realization that they can depend on each other and on themselves.

Paula Danziger and Ann M. Martin combine their peerless talents to tell this rich and complex story.
