Rachel Berman wants everything to be perfect. An overprotective single mother of two, she is acutely aware of the statistical dangers lurking around every corner - which makes her snap decision to aid a stranded motorist wholly uncharacteristic. Len Bean is stuck on the shoulder with Olivia, his relentlessly curious, learning disabled ten-year-old daughter. To the chagrin of Rachel's children, who are about to be linked to the most-mocked girl in school, Rachel and Len begin dating. And when Len receives terrible news, little Olivia needs a hero more than ever.
But the world refuses to be predictable. When personal crisis profoundly alters Rachel's relationship with a wild, very special little girl, this perfectionist mother finds herself drawn into a mystery from her past and toward a new appreciation for her own children's imperfect lives.
Inside Out Girl, clearly narrated at a relaxed pace by Jennifer Bradshaw, is the poignant, heartbreaking, and ultimately uplifting story of Rachel, a single and often overbearing mother who wishes she could control every aspect of her and her children’s lives.
The publisher of a dying parenting magazine, Rachel’s life is anything but in control when she pulls over to the side of the road to help a stranded motorist and widower, Len, and his developmentally disabled daughter - known as the "inside out girl" at Rachel’s children's school for wearing her clothes wrong.
A romance brews and, while not easy, Rachel slowly remembers what it’s like to love and be loved - even during the tough, uncontrollable times of life that will inevitably come.
