Invisible Girl by Mary Hanlon Stone

This is an awesome summer book for teen girls and moms!

Premise: When poor Boston girl, Stephanie, is abandoned by her abusive mother and taken in by Annie’s Los Angeles family, she feels anything but at home.  Her dark complexion and shabby clothes stick out in the golden-hued world of blondes and extravagance.  These are girls who seem to live life in fast forward, while Stephanie is stuck on pause.  Yet when a new rival moves to town, threatening Annie’s queen-bee status, Stephanie finds herself taking sides in a battle she never even knew existed, and finds that feeling invisible is a wound that can only be healed by standing up for who she is.
