While jotting down observations in her Rulebook for Living (such as "Women with fat faces shouldn't wear bangs" and "Beetles signify change"), Tallie finds herself changing in unexpected ways - as she tests the limits of trust, explores her growing attraction to a boy from a family as rich as her imagination, and reaches for the sky like she has never done before.
By turns funny and tender, joyous and poignant, best-selling author Anne LeClaire has written a winning, stylish novel of small-town Southern life - and what it means to be a mother, daughter, best friend, wife, and lover.
