Maya’s Green Tip for the Day: Recycled fashion is one of the most fun
ways to go green. A pair of jeans could be transformed into a denim
skirt. A sweater into a vest. A bunch of old ties into a dress. A
blanket into a poncho. Accessorize it in new way–with beads, buttons,
appliqués, buckles, stencils, or ribbons … your imagination is only the
limit. (65 words)

Sixteen-year-old Maya Stark has a lot to
sort through. She could graduate from high school early if she wants to.
She’s considering it, especially when popular cheerleader Vanessa
Hartman decides to make her life miserable – and Maya’s ex-boyfriend
Dominic gets the wrong idea about everything.

To complicate
matters even more, Maya’s mother will be released from prison soon, and
she’ll want Maya to live with her again. That’s a disaster waiting to
happen. And when Maya plays her dad’s old acoustic guitar in front of an
audience, she discovers talents and opportunities she never expected.
Faced with new options, Maya must choose between a “normal” life and a
glamorous one. Ultimately, she has to figure out what matters most.
