Penny has always lived in New York, but with the break-up of her parents’ marriage she is now in Hog’s Hollow with her mom. She left behind the busy New York life and her friends only to become the butt of Charity’s constant pranks. While Charity continues to torment her, Penny finds friends in Tally and Blake and has a crush on Marcus. We see her grow and adapt to small town life and her new friends. Really kind of a fun read!
