Low Price Guarantee
We Take School POs
All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

When Jessica is diagnosed with social anxiety disorder, she finally understands why her best friend is her dog and why she breaks out in a sweat whenever she interacts with others.

Can a kindred spirit help her work through her anxiety? Can she overcome her fear and make some real friends?

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2015 Spring)
Each installment of this new hi/lo series focuses on the turnaround experienced by one featured teen via his/her experience at an alternative high school. Issues range from gang life to anxiety disorders to crushing family responsibilities and beyond, and protagonists' previous (unfortunate) choices are presented with refreshing candor. The messaging often overtakes character development, privileging adult perspectives and simplifying the teens' struggles.
