Title: The Heart is Not a Size
Author: Beth Kephart
Release Date: March 30, 2010
When Georgia and her best friend, Riley, travel along with nine other suburban Pennsylvania kids to Anapra, a squatters' village in the heat-flattened border city of Juarez, Mexico, secrets seem to percolate and threaten both a friendship and a life.
Certainties unravel. Reality changes. And Georgia is left to figure out who she is outside the world she's always known.
Taken from Amazon.
