Catalyst by Laurie Halse Anderson

"Meet Kate Malone"

She is a Straight-A science geek, she's the minister's daughter, ace long-distance runner, new girlfriend (to Mitchell "Early Decision Harvard" Pangborn III), and unwilling family caretaker. Kate manages her life by organizing it as logically as the periodic table. She can handle it all—or so she thinks. Then, things change as suddenly as a string of chemical reactions. The Malones' neighbors house gets burned down and the very annoying kids have to move in the Malones temporarily. The days are ticking down and she's still waiting to hear from the only college she applied to, MIT. Kate feels that her life is spinning out of her control—and then, something happens that truly blows it all apart.
