First the Review: March Misfit by Barbara Stremikis got a fabulous review at BookWenches:
March Misfit is a story of isolation and courage and love, of feeling alone in a crowd yet finding the strength to stand up for oneself and others. I became engrossed in this story immediately upon opening the cover and simply could not put it down until I had read the final page. Cara and the March family come to life within the narrative, and their struggles, turmoil, and dysfunction captured both my heart and my imagination.
I’m sure you can tell that I think March Misfit is a truly outstanding story. I do, it is, and I can’t recommend it highly enough. It is my understanding that this is Ms. Stremikis’s debut novel. All I can say about that is simply…wow; I’m incredibly impressed. This is an author to watch, in my opinion. I will be eagerly awaiting her next release, and I’ll be placing March Misfit on my keeper shelf.
They rated it 5+ and a Keeper! No surprise to us, of course, since we know how great it is, but it's always fab when others agree with us :) Want to check it out? Order your copy from the Climbing Rose store today!

Little did Jordan Meadows realize, when Dad insisted she get a job, it would turn out to be such an amazing summer! Who would have guessed that all her eyebrow, bikini, and leg waxes at Tranquility Spa would pay off as job experience? Working behind the scenes on the set of House of Wax IX: Return of the Revengenator, she becomes the go-to girl for paraffin wax. Then she meets Keith Charles, a band nerd from her high school. Between draping his freckled arms with wax and making sure he looks extra clotty, she's stunned to find herself falling in love with someone outside her own clique. As filming and the summer draw to a close, she's a changed girl, for sure. She's made friends with people she never would have associated with at North High School, but what about her friends, the awesome foursome? Should she break up with Keith, since he's not a member of her exclusive, inner circle? Or is it time to branch out and make new friends?
