Piper always wished for a new life. She never thought she'd actually get it. When she does, she goes through hell just to pick herself up from the ground.
As one who's always been ridiculed, she finds it hard to let new people into her life. When she loses her mother, she realizes that sometimes family isn't the best thing for a person. More
Piper yearned for a new life. School was a disaster, and home offered no comfort. One day, when she finds herself abandoned, it seems she's gotten her wish, but things couldn't be worse. Hopeless and destitute, Piper commits a grand act that, one day, could cost her even more than her unsatisfactory life.
After a series of trials, Piper manages to get her life back on track. In a new city and at a new school, she meets friends who help her to be the person she'd always imagined herself to be. In the end, Piper reconciles, in her own way, a destructive relationship between herself and her unstable mother, and then goes on to live a happy life.
