It's written with intelligence and humor and is a rare accurate depiction of the pressures of high school life that manages to not be in your face overdone. Though predictable, it's refreshingly so and you'll absorb the lessons of "do what's best for you" and "know yourself and you will know others," before you know what hits you.
It's a short, easy read that will have even your poor fiance forced to listen to it in the car with you going, "Wait, that's it? Funny and optimistic. She's a straight-A senior, a vegan, and her parents' pride and joy. She's neck-and-neck with her womanizing ex-boyfriend for numberone class ranking and plans to kick his salutatorian butt on her way out the door to Yale.
Mara has her remaining months in Brockport all planned out, but the plan does not include having V, her slutty, pot-smoking, sixteen-year-old niece - yes, niece - come to live with her family. Nor does it involve lusting after her boss or dreaming about grilled cheese sandwiches every night. What does a control freak like Mara do when things start spinning wildly out of control? With insight, authenticity, and a healthy dose of humor, Carolyn Mackler creates an evolving Type A heroine that every reader will recognize - and root for.
From School Library JournalGrade 8 UpOverachieving high school senior Mara Valentine's drive stems from the belief that she is her parents' "Only Hope"; her year-old sister has achieved nothing but having a daughter, V, who is only a year younger than Mara and appears to be a "nicotine-addicted nympho.
Mara is a sharp, interesting narrator, but she has alienated most of her friends with her rigid, single-minded attitudes. Her life is thrown into chaos when V comes to live with the family, and provides multiple shades of gray in Mara's black-and-white world. She makes out with Mara's ex on the first day of school and constantly makes cutting, but frighteningly accurate, comments about the limitations of her aunt's life plans.
In the midst of this chaos, while working part-time at a local caf, Mara falls in love with her year-old boss who hasn't gone to college and is forced to reassess the goals that V has already called into question. The romance is believable, as is the tension between Mara and V, although both situations resolve smoothly and somewhat quickly. This is a fast, often humorous read with some meat but no bite although Mara does lose her virginity just the universal theme of growing up and figuring out what's important.
This title will have strong appeal for teens grappling with these same questions. Karyn N. All rights reserved. From BooklistGr. Besides the words vegan and virgin, overachiever also describes Mara Valentine.
