Terry L. Garlock is proud of his daughter, Melanie, as she becomes an adult. In this book he delivers his fatherly advice, broken into bite-sized portions fashioned after "Gibbs' Rules" from the TV show NCIS. Gathering what he learned from parents, mentors and the bumps and scrapes of life, Terry has written herein his version of wisdom, intended to give Melanie acceleration in gathering life's lessons. Knowing the universal resistance to parental advice, Terry decided that binding these bits and pieces in this book might double the chance Melanie will read and absorb them and perhaps be encouraged to contemplate for herself what she believes to be true.
Sixteen-year-old Pippa Greene never goes anywhere without her camera. She and her best friend/supermodel-in-training Dace long ago mapped out their life plan: Pippa will be the noted fashion photographer, and Dace the cover girl. But ever since last spring, things have changed for Pippa ? and her junior year at Spalding High proves to have its own set of challenges. Not only is Vantage Point, the statewide photography competition, in three short weeks, but her mandatory volunteer placement lands her at St. Christopher's Hospital, a place Pippa never wanted to set foot in again. With humour and pluck, she navigates her new role as a candy striper (watch out for Code Yellows), her changing relationship with her best friend (goodbye Honesty Pact), and ? perhaps most stressful of all ? her new love interests (yes, love interests plural).
