Violet Raines Almost Got Struck by Lightning

by Danette Haworth
Spunky, headstrong Violet loves her life in a sleepy, backwoods Florida town. But when Melissa moves there from Detroit with a much faster-paced agenda, Violet has to make some decisions.
This debut novel tells a classic tale of best friends, budding romance, and bad storms, as Haworth introduces a charming young tomboy who finds that growing up doesn't mean she has to change who she is.
