Fifteen-year-old Skye, the middle child, finds herself wishing for a new life - one that doesn't include daily harassment from the in-crowd at Highland Creek High School. Skye barely survived freshman year. She only did because her best friend, Goose, a semi-popular fellow band geek, was by her side. But when their sophomore year starts, Goose ditches Skye for a new crowd.
Cast into a lone existence at Highland Creek, Skye wishes for a touch of extraordinary that everyone, except her, seems to have. Her older sister, Sara Elizabeth, has it. Goose is getting close to it, and even her little sister is wildly popular in junior high. Skye would do almost anything to cast off her ordinary life...but at what price?
When her older sister goes missing without a trace, Skye gets her wish...but it's not exactly what she had in mind. And when she questions Bryan, the senior class renegade and also the last person to be seen with her sister, she finds something she never quite expected.

Girl in the Middle was a wonderful surprise! It’s amazing how well Christina is able to touch on deep subject matter and see it all in the perspective of adolescence. The relationships between the sisters, parents, teachers, friends and romantic interest were spot-on! It brought to light how often we are caught in the middle during our places in life and the choices we make. An excellent well written read that I recommend to teens and anybody else who thinks they might be… in the middle.
The personal relationships within the family
The library encounters
I drifted back to my high school years and identified with sense of being "stuck in the middle". Oh... If I knew then what I know now!!!
Very nice narration for this genre.
