Not Suitable for Family ViewingBook - 2009
Robin has everything a girl could want. Thanks to her mother--the internationally beloved talk show host Mimi Schwartz--Robin's got the money, the means and the connections to make even her wildest dreams come true. so why, then, does she choose to sit alone in a dark room watching endless reruns of you, you and Mimi?
Don't ask Robin. She doesn't know--not, at least, until the bizarre discovery of an old high-school ring propels her to ditch New York for a tiny Nova scotian fishing village. In her quest to solve the mystery behind the ring's origin, Robin finds more than a renewed joie de vivre. she discovers love, the truth of her own background-- and the shocking secret that helped make her mother a star.
It's as if the picture suddenly blows up to a full-screen image. The rest of the room shrinks down to a little icon in the corner. I'm stunned. until this very second, I didn't seriously believe Mimi had anything to do with Port Minton. Sure, she had the ring but--I don't know--I figured I'd find some totally reasonable explanation for that. This is not reasonable.
I stare at the picture in the bulletin. It's blurry and faded, but it's definitely Mimi. What would a kid from new york be doing in a place like this? What would a Jewish kid be doing in a Baptist church bulletin?

You think this is going to be a typical teenage romance read, but it turns into quite a good mystery.
