TheirMoreLucy and her father live in a furnished basement apartment in a part of the city that sometimes makes Mac nervous.

They drive to the suburbs to prestigious Pearson Academy each day in an old rusty station wagon without air conditioning. Their combined wardrobe fits easily into the one small closet in the one-bedroom apartment. And yet, these realities do not get them down... because the Mackensies know how to look for Silver Linings. Lucy, who often feels much older than her fourteen years, is at the top of her class at Pearson Academy.

She loves music and is happy to be taking piano lessons and enjoying Honors Band. And, best of all, after years of moving around and not having one, she now has a best friend. Cynical, sarcastic, outspoken but fiercely loyal Nadine Brentwood has come into her life and changed everything. But the reverse is also true- overshadowed by a popular basketball superstar brother who sucks all of the attention out of her life, Nadine has finally found someone for herself.

Someone she is not about to share.Though Lucys father, Mac, constantly carries the pain of missing of his wife, who is in Africa, he is coming into his own at Pearson Academy. After a dozen years between jobs, he finds himself to be a popular and successful part-time English teacher.

He believes he is making a real difference at the school, is providing for Lucy, and is even realizing a big dream by starring in a professional production of Hamlet. If you are the biggest Shakespeare geek this side of the equator, that means life is good. This is where the story opens up.The story, told through Lucys eyes, takes you along for the ride as that good life starts to unravel on them - finally landing the Mackensies in an unexpectedly strange little community called Elizabethtown.

Elizabethtown is an attempted utopia put together by a group of founders fifteen years ago. The goal- to ensure that citizens want for nothing, have perfect equality, and are able to become their best possible most productive selves. Too good to be true? Maybe.

It feels unsettling or even downright sinister at times, to Lucy and Mac. Was it simply bad luck that led them to this place, or was someone out to get them? And if someone was out to get them - why would that someone want them there?Along the road to Elizabethtown, there is a rumored secret admirer to deal wtih, followed by a crazy summer at the Brentwood pool (complete with noisy teenaged boys), tractor-beam voodoo, confusing crushes and heavy freaking elephants to lug around.Silver Linings is about Lucy and the people who are so important to her life.

It is about that deep, comfortable, safe and sure love between a father and his daughter- deepening closeness between a girl and her best friend, and the confusing but touching first love between a boy and a girl... who come from different parts of the universe, or possibly even different planets.Welcome to Lucys roller coaster life.
