Ali was just a normal teenage girl. That is, until her mom died. Her grades have dropped, and she only talks to her closest friends. Her dad decides that a trip across the country to California could be good for her, especially because she will be visiting Megan, a girl Ali's age that has straight A's and a perfect reputation. Megan dreads Ali's visit, and Ali feels the same way. She hates being ripped away from her friends and any if all memories of her mother. Will Ali and Megan work it out, or will this be World War III?
