Many issues are covered in this well-written YA piece, from sibling rivalry to unmarried cohabitation to child abuse to younger man-older woman relationships. A sense of humor pervades the work delightfully. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0698116887, Paperback)

It's absolutely disgusting being fourteen. You've got no rights whatsoever. Your parents get to make all the decisions: Who gets the single bedroom. How much allowance is enough. What time you must come in. Who is a proper friend. What your report card is supposed to look like. And what your parents don't tell you to do, the school does. None of this seems fair to Lauren Allen, but then she finds a way to fight back. She can even sue her parents for malpractice...can't she? "Entangled in a web of family friction, adolescent uncertainty, and romantic longing, Lauren slowly learns to make decisions that are right for her....Humor abounds, nicely balancing the reality." -- Children's Book Review Service "Ruefully and relentlessly funny." -- The New Yorker Paula Danziger lives in New York City and Bearsville, New York. "This novel is as much fun as Danziger's The Cat Ate My Gymsuit." -- School Library Journal
