Piper Perish inhales air and exhales art. The sooner she and her best friends can get out of Houston and get to New York City, the better. Art school has been Piper's dream her whole life, and now that senior year is halfway over, she's never felt more ready. But in the final months before graduation, things are weird with her friends and stressful with three different guys, and Piper's sister's tyrannical mental state seems to thwart every attempt at happiness for the close-knit Perish family. Piper's art just might be enough to get her out. But is she brave enough to seize that power when it means giving up so much? Debut author Kayla Cagan breathes new life into fiction in this dynamic, utterly authentic work featuring interior art from Rookie magazine illustrator Maria Ines Gul. Piper will have readers asking big questions along with her. What is love? What is friendship? What is family? What is home? And who is a person when she's missing any one of these things?

Poor Piper Perish. She's a really talented young artist and expecting to be accepted to a fancy art college in New York any day now but then life gets in the way... her sister, who has a terrible temper and who's basically her nemesis, moves back home because she's pregnant and... suddenly it seems unlikely that her parents will have the money to pay for her tuition.

I really liked the book -- Piper seems like a very interesting young woman and I wish she was a real person so I could see her art! She also has wonderful friends, even though they make her go through difficult situations that year.

Marley, her sister, is a real monster and I constantly wanted to tell her off! What a horrible selfish person.

I want to be Piper's friend :)
