All You Get Is Me

Roar's father has completely changed how they live after her mother leaves. He's bought a farm to grow organic food. Now Roar is living out on a farm, working hard and getting dirty. One day Roar and her father are on their way to the farmer's market when they see a horrible accident. An illegal farm worker named Sylvia is killed when she is hit by a careless driver. Roar's father takes the case to help Sylvia's family have money to live on and to bring justice for this needless death. In the midst of this, Roar meets Forest, the son of the woman who hit Sylvia. What will happen this summer to them all, and how will it change Roar forever?

"All You Get Is Me" is an interesting, new teen love story. It was intriguing to watch Roar and Forest's relationship develop in the midst of the drama involving their parents. This was a fast-paced novel by Yvonne Prinz that you will be unable to set down.

Book Blurb for All You Get Is Me

A summer of love, loss, and justice.

Things were complicated enough for Roar, even before her father decided to yank her out of the city and go organic. Suddenly, she’s a farm girl, albeit a reluctant one, selling figs at the farmers’ market and developing her photographs in a ramshackle shed. Caught between a troublemaking sidekick named Storm, a brooding, easy-on-the-eyes L.A. boy, and a father on a human rights crusade that challenges the fabric of the farm community, Roar is going to have to tackle it all—even with dirt under her fingernails and her hair pulled back with a rubber band meant for asparagus.
