Author G G Collinsabout this book: After the death of her mother, Courtney's father moves his fragile family from the home they've always known in Minneapolis. In Santa Fe all the houses are brown, art and tourists abound and she knows no one.

Things get worse when she meets Silky. She is an artist her dad knows through his gallery, or so he says. Courtney and her older sister Francine conspire to sabotage Silky's relationship with their father, but young Toby wants a mother. Silky tries to reach out to Courtney by sharing stories of Native American potters and their intriguing ways of collecting clay and creating their art. Courtney knows Silky is trying to build a relationship with her but sometimes she is unkind to her. Courtney doesn't want to be, it's not her nature, but hurtful things to fall out of her mouth. Little does she know that Silky has experienced profound loss too.

Soon she meets the girl who lives next door and they become friends. Audrey introduces Courtney to hot air balloons, hiking and skiing. Audrey has a broken family too. Her dad left her and her mother. Audrey's inability to delay gratification gets both girls into trouble with the law. Courtney needs an ally, but her dad is out of town and that leaves only Silky to rescue her. Will she?

Whether you are a teen going through change or an adult who remembers the joy and pain of being a young adult, Without Notice depicts the inner struggle of a newly blended family.

This is the second installment in G G Collins new Teen Line. The first, Flying Change, is an equestrian novel. Where Flying Change focuses on courage and adversity, Without Notice is the story of a wounded family trying to find their footing in a new city. It's difficult to blend a family that hurts. The challenges are many, but the rewards can be as well. We see how this evolves through 13-year-old Courtney.
