"The theme of finding acceptance and fitting in is catchy and contemporary." School Library Journal "The authors present a no-holds-barred look at the realities of being an adolescent in today's society: parental breakups, peer pressure, drugs, alcohol and sex. And though not every teenager will be confronted with these issues, it is clear from this glimpse into the adolescent world that the challenges of being a teenager today are more complex than most of us realize." Bookpage "It's the details, though, that make this an irresistible read: clothing, parties, music, trends are all captured to perfection, although these specifics will date quickly. Get this on your shelves now, while it's sure to please." Booklist, ALA "Reads like a high school version of The Nanny Diaries. The authors seem to know this territory well . . . which should discomfit any parents who get their hands on it." --New York Post New York Post --
