Tell Me About It
Jamie and Elaine have been best friends forever, and now they're finally juniors in high school. Elaine has a steady boyfriend, and Jamie could have one--if she'd just open her eyes and see Paul. But Jamie has a bigger problem to worry about. Then Elaine gets "in trouble"--something they thought only happened to "other" girls. Are there any good choices for a girl in trouble?

My Thoughts
I got In Trouble from Netgalley and it was one of my first accepted books. I have had In Trouble for a while and have only just got around to reading it.

The book follows two friends, Jamie and Elaine, as they try to get through a mutual problem.  They have their ups and downs like any other friendship does, but in the end things end up ok for them.

The book also hints at family and some slight religion and a mention of rape.

I thought In Trouble was a quick but well written read, and it gave me a glimpse into what life in the 1950s-1960s was like.
