Larch Waysorta lives by The Rules:

Honor your mother. Ace out school. Be kind to small dogs and children.

What a bunch of stupid, stupid rules.

The Rules don't tell you what to do when your best friend is falling in love with a drop-dead gorgeous jerk. Or when your trailer turns into a winter home for every rat in Pottsville, Ohio. Or when you find out The Truth about the night your father died.

Do you sometimes have to break The Rules if you want to handle The Truth?

display_description Eleven-year-old Larch has depended on her own rules to help her cope with the life she and her mother share in a trailer in a small Ohio town, but her rules do not help her deal with a rat-catching dog, her best friend's crush, and the truth she learns about her father's death.
