Publisher's Summary

When the death of her father leaves her mother in a state of shock, card shark Hallie Palmer - the fiery protagonist from Beginner's Luck and Heart's Desire - returns home from college to bravely deal herself in as head of a chaotic household and care for her eight younger siblings. But even after the invasion of those well-meaning, casserole carrying purveyors of comfort the local church ladies, Hallie's in a downward spiral. Thank goodness for old friends like Bernard and Gil who keep Hallie afloat as she discovers that life can indeed turn on a dime, and that every coin has two sides plus and edge. Still, just because beginner's luck can't last forever doesn't mean you're out of the game.

Critic Reviews

"Pedersen is skilled at capturing teen language and style and manages to put a great deal of humor into what could have been a maudlin tale." (Booklist)
