Picture Perfect by D. Anne Love
Okay, so here's the other book I couldn't remember a thing about. Once again courtesy of Amazon: Phoebe is about to start high school when her mother works her way up in her cosmetic sales job so ridiculously fast that she basically goes away on a business trip and decides not to come home. While Phoebe wrestles with her mother's abandonment of the family, an interesting woman moves in next door and starts getting friendly with her dad, which worries Phoebe. Okay, now I'm remembering things... her dad's a judge, and he tries a hotbed of a case that gets people in the small Texas town accosting him (drama!), and Phoebe's really whiny. Broad brushstrokes, not that interesting a story. NAY.
