BookTeen with Ingrid Palmer

About Ingrid Palmer:
Ingrid Palmer is a young adult author who writes stories about family dynamics, the nuances of friendship, and all the emotions that accompany the brave act of growing up. Originally from Ohio, she now lives in a Colorado mountain town with her husband and two sons, surrounded by herds of elk, an occasional black bear, and endless evergreen trees. Ingrid has a master's degree in journalism from Northwestern University and is a graduate of the Denver Publishing Institute. All Out of Pretty is her debut novel. 

At 16, straight-laced, straight-A student Andrea Hathaway is whisked from the safety of her Gram's home and dropped into the backwoods of Ohio. Thrust into a dangerous new life with her estranged, drug-addicted mother and her mother’s controlling dealer/boyfriend, Andrea learns to keep her head down and her mouth shut. But soon she realizes that surviving isn’t enough; she must use her smarts to plan an escape–even if it means betraying her best friends and leaving her mother behind. All Out of Pretty explores the complexities of self-preservation as well as the pain, and beauty, of letting go.
