This first novel by an English teacher really hits a nerve. Itís written for teens, but adults and parents will find great insight into a teenagerís world. Teenagers will learn that their lives arenít all that different from their classmates. But everyone will find itís darned good entertainment. Itís starts out fast and stays that way, moving you through the life of a teenage girl as she struggles with the reality of alcoholic parents, who continually demean her, and drugs, booze, sex, and the teenage party scene. Parents wonít be able to mistake the underlying message that teenage children need and deserve respect and that communication is the key. Teenagers wonít miss the message that they must learn to value themselves and their futures if they are to survive the most tumultuous years of their lives. Great reading.
