Kelly 'n' Me
About the Book
Anthony, fifteen, helps his mother, a has-been actress, pay the bills by playing guitar in Central Park. One day he meets Kelly Callahan, a girl with a beautiful voice, singing in the park, and they work up an act together. They become successful street performers- and fall in love. But Kelly is not who she claims to be. When she reveals her true life, their friendship is severely tested.
