Best Foot Forward by Joan Bauer
Just let me start off by saying that Joan Bauer is one of all my all-time favourite writers of realistic teen fiction, and her sequel to Rules of the Road did nothing to change my mind about that. BFF is another great book about Jenna and Gladstone Shoes. This time everything is spinning out of control -- she has been made a manager over a teen "delinquent," tries to carve out time for a social life and a little romance, and continues dealing with issues surrounding her alcoholic father; but, worst of all (and hardest), are the corporate intrigues and lies that threaten to destroy the company she loves. Humour, wit, compassion, and honesty are all traits of this fine story.
