Jennifer Harris’ life has undergone a serious transformation since the last time she saw her childhood best friend, Cameron Quick. Gone is the shy, chubby outcast Jennifer and in her place is Jenna Harris, a teenager who is popular, happy and dating one of the hottest guys in school. She is in fact everything that ’Jenna’ knows Jennifer never could be. But when her long lost friend Cameron suddenly reappears in her life, a friend she thought dead, both are faced with the stinging memories of the past that no transformation can truly leave behind.

Confronted by her past and the truth about Cameron’s disappearance, Jenna struggles to come to terms with who she was then and who she is now, all while rebuilding one of the most important relationships of her life.

Full of emotion, SWEETHEARTS is a beautifully written story about the power of friendship and its ability to transform. Anyone who’s struggled to fit in will be able to sympathize with Jennifer’s desire to transform herself into someone else.

This is Ms. Zarr’s second young adult novel.
