To read an excerpt from Rebel in Blue Jeans:
Sixteen-year-old Rebel Ferguson has a wonderful life. She lives on a large farm, has lots of animals that she loves and cares for, friends she can always count on, and parents who love her. One day, without warning, Rebel's world is turned upside down. Her mother has run off with a drummer in a rock band, her father has turned to alcohol, and she is left feeling alone and unwanted. What is Rebel to do?
I think that Rebel in Blue Jeans is a book that all young adults will relate to. The author tackles the difficult subjects of divorce, young adult relationships, and discovering oneself in an uncertain world.
I would recommend this book to all young adult readers. I wish Rebel in Blue Jeans had been in print when I was sixteen and tackling some of the same difficult subjects that Rebel faces.
