School Library Journal Review

Gr 7-9-Through journal entries, Alice MacLeod, 15, tells of her exasperations and "Life Goals." She lives in a small British Columbian town, and feels misunderstood by her ex-hippie parents. Her mom is still "deep into her granola routine," but her dad has mellowed into a writer of soft-core romance novels. Both of them want to see their daughter thrive, but their attempts at homeschooling only emphasize how dysfunctional they are. With tongue-in-cheek humor and in a loose, meandering style, the teen describes her progress toward reentry into public school through an alternative program, encounters with her archenemy from first grade, meaningful conversations with a counselor dubbed the "Death Lord," a budding romance, and more. Readers involved in defining themselves and their world will enjoy this narrative.-Susan Cooley, formerly at Tower Hill School, Wilmington, DE (c) Copyright 2010.
