The house keeper is ironing and I am lying on the floor beside her, trying to secretly look up her dress. (from the first line)
Thirteen-year-old Katie is new to her Missouri town, living alone with a stern, inaccessible father following her mother's death. Unable to fit in at school, Katie forges alliances wherever she can: with her housekeeper, with a pimply-faced fellow misfit named Cynthia, and with the gorgeous Taylor, who gets her kicks out of shoplifting. Most frustrating of all is Katie's alliance with a handsome 23-year-old who shares her love for checkers but doesn't return her crush. . .
Katie's mother dies, and she moves to Missouri with her abusive father, only to fall in love with an older married man.

Boston Book Review
"[T]he richness of the characters and the intricacies of their personal relationships make this a delightful and valuable book....Elizabeth Berg is exceptionally talented at rendering the emotional pain of love and friendships meaningful, in a natural, honest voice. She is a graceful, insightful author..." - Ellen Howards April 1997

San Francisco Chronicle Book Review
"The adolescent internal monologue offered by both hilarious and heartbreaking." - Patty O'Connell 03/30/1997

New York Times Book Review
"...Katie's lively narrative voice provides the novel's greatest pleasure. Its ancillary to the real story of how she grows up and surmounts her losses....It [treats] a venerable theme with freshness." - Polly Morrice 06/15/1997
