Keeley is always losing her phone, so it’s a miracle when she finds it under a table at the fair—until some boy calls claiming that he has her phone and the phone she’s answering is actually his. Despite the fact that this random boy is arrogant and infuriating, he also listens and brings out the best in Keeley. Maybe losing her phone wasn’t such a bad thing after all.

I enjoyed reading Keeley’s story because Keeley is dynamic in a way that I would like to be. Keeley wants to change and become her best self after she realizes that she can be different. Change is best when we consciously choose who we want to become—as shown by Keeley’s example.
