If she hadn’t believed that pack of lies Zack Southerby fed her out on the front porch swing, she wouldn’t be in the swelled up predicament she was in now, if you get my drift. And my brother, Tom, wouldn’t have that two inch scar running down his face if that one board hadn’t jarred loose and tripped him while he was running across it with Mama’s good kitchen scissors. Daddy said he didn’t know how that nail could’ve jimmied up a good inch out of the deck- said it must’ve been the heat that popped it. But I knew better. Our porch was cursed, no doubt about it.Bad thing was, it wasn’t just after our family. Our neighbor Rita was helping Mama snap beans last summer, when she all of a sudden keeled over and died. Doc blamed that on the heat and Rita’s age. But I’d been to Rita’s just the day before, helping her snap her own beans, on her own porch, and she didn’t die there.”Our heroine, Charlotte, is a young girl who hates chores, fights with her sister, and keeps a “To See Before I Die” list. Normal teen, with two exceptions she has cancer and she has no boobs. Oh, and a sister who’s pregnant and full of pre-baby hormones. Of course Charlotte knows why everything bad happens to them: it’s the front porch. And the snake that lives underneath it, which is why she won’t step one foot on it. In the end, the choice she makes will leave readers talking long after they’ve read the last page.This is Rebecca Youngs 9th book for young adults.
