A slacker student's perspective changes when he gets his hands on his teacher's journal.
PJ Barnes is on the fast track to failing high school, and everyone is riding him about it--especially his English teacher, Mrs. Jordan. Then, somehow, her personal journal gets mixed up with his homework papers. Thinking he'll find the answers to the next quiz, he starts reading and quickly discovers it's not what he expected. As insights and family secrets surface, PJ begins to realize that Mrs. Jordan knows more about his past, his present, and his future than he ever imagined. Author Marlene Carvell explores the impact that decisions have on our lives in this exciting, moving novel for young adults.
