What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Design
This is another Iowa Teen Choice nominee for 2013-2014.

Summary from
Since her parents' bitter divorce, McLean and her dad, a restaurant consultant, have been on the move-four towns in two years. Estranged from her mother and her mother's new family, McLean has followed her dad in leaving the unhappy past behind. And each new place gives her a chance to try out a new persona: from cheerleader to drama diva. But now, for the first time, McLean discovers a desire to stay in one place and just be herself, whoever that is. Perhaps Dave, the guy next door, can help her find out. 

My 25 cents:
This is an easy summer read.  The main character is a strong, independent girl that has chosen to live with her dad after divorce, even though that means moving around a LOT!  Sometimes every two months??  Really makes the reader think about how people see you and how you need to think about how you want to be "seen" as a person.  Probably upper middle schoolers will enjoy this better than elementary readers.
