Katie Parker is about to get a new life - whether she wants one or not. With her mom in prison, and her father AWOL, Katie is sent to live with a squeaky-clean family who could have their own sitcom. She launches a full-scale plan to get sent back to the girls home, when she finds herself in over her head...and heart.
When Katie and her new crowd get into significant trouble at school, she finds her punishment is restoring a historic theater with a crazy grandma who goes by the name of Mad Maxine. In the midst of her punishment, Katie uncovers family secrets that run deep, and realizes she's not the only one with a pain-filled past. Katie must decide if she'll continue her own family's messed up legacy, or embrace a new beginning in this place called In Between.

Refreshing and enlightening
I read this for bookclub. At first I'm thinking , this is too elementary but felt I had to continue reading it in order to give my input at the meet. It became a wake up call for me. Have faith, believe that prayers are answered and someone far greater than I is in charge and wants the best for us. Things happen for a reason and we may not know those reasons for a long time or ever for that matter. I wish all troubled teens would read this........I wish everyone would read this.

full of humor, heartbreak, and real life
In Between is both a fun and heartbreaking story. Katie is a foster child… one who will soon be aging out of the system. Written from Katie Parker’s perspective, this captivating story lets us as readers in on her innermost feelings and fears. While her choices aren’t always the best, she really just wants to love and be loved, and to replace her deepest fears with lasting hope.
The humor in this book will bring a smile to your face. Jenny B Jones has a very upbeat and candid writing style that I truly enjoyed. As I listened to the audio version, I want to add that Reba Buhr did a fantastic job reading Katie’s story. I want to finish the series!
This book correlates with guacamole and lime tortilla chips for me. Guacamole with some spice. The combination of flavors is just right.
