Soon-to-be-sixteen Josie Taylor was born on Leap Day, February 29, and now it's her "fourth" birthday. Like any average teenager, sometimes she wonders what other people are thinking, but today it's the reader who gets to find out, by "leaping" into the minds and viewpoints of Josie and everyone around her.
Birthday surprises, school play auditions, her driver's test, a scavenger hunt, and the all-important sweet-sixteen initiation at the lake -- these are the things that define Josie Taylor today. But what define her tomorrow and in the days to come are the people who touch her life at every moment.
A fascinating, at times astonishing, new novel, Leap Day is full of everyday imaginations and truths in the life and future of one "everygirl" teenager.
