Synopsis

The Key To The Golden Firebird by Maureen Johnson

Life hasn't been the same for the Gold sisters since their father died. Brooks is not-so-quietly falling apart, May is desperately trying to keep everything and everyone together, and Palmer ...well, who knows what's up with Palmer. May is sure if she could just learn to drive, life would be so much simpler. But with both her mom and Brooks permanently AWOL, getting her licence is looking hopeless - until Pete offers to teach her. Pete, the incredibly annoying boy-next-door who's like a brother to May ...or is he?

This summer May's going to have to learn to cope with a lot more than just Driver's Ed if she wants to keep her family together, get the guy and maybe - just maybe - earn the key to the Golden Firebird.

About the Author

Maureen Johnson

Maureen Johnson was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, during a massive snowstorm. After a little dalliance with astronomy (she had a glow in the dark star chart) and archaeology (she had a little shovel), Maureen declared her intention to become a writer at the age of eight or nine or so.

Maureen has written several books for teens as well as contributing to various anthologies. In November 2009 Let It Snow (written in conjunction with John Green and Lauren Myracle) became a New York Times bestseller.

Maureen currently lives in New York, and was recently crowned the 2012 Queen of Teen in the UK.
