Synopsis via Goodreads
Rachel thought she was grown up enough to accept that no one is perfect. Her parents argue, her grandmother has been acting strangely, and her best friend doesn't want to talk to her. But none of that could have prepared her for what she overheard in her synagogue's sanctuary.

Now Rachel's trust in the people she loves is shattered, and her newfound cynicism leads to reckless rebellion. Her friends and family hardly recognize her, and worse, she can hardly recognize herself. But how can the adults in her life lecture her about acting with kevanah, intention, when they are constantly making such horribly wrong decisions themselves? This is a witty, honest account of navigating the daunting line between losing innocence and entering adulthood—all while figuring out who you really want to be.


Sometimes I feel like books give too much away in their synopsis but this one leaves plenty to my imagination as to what exactly could happen in this book. I don't know about you but I'm extremely curious to know what Rachel overheard in the synagogue. Plus I love the cover. So beautiful with the stainglass in the background and I like the color scheme. What do you think?

I think you are right about the synopsis sometimes giving away too much. I loved the cover of this one, too! It's very striking. I'll be looking for this title. Great pick!
