I highly recommend this title--it's definitely PG-13. The book realistically portrays a young girl struggling with her identity and coping with dysfunctional parents and a sexual predator. All of the characters are vivid and believable--with many opportunities for discussion group topics like addiction, alcoholism, body image, bullying.

Well I guess I'm going to be the first one to comment. I'm just going to say that the description that is given up there doesn't do it justice. The book is full of things that most adults couldn't imagine going through. It was very well written and all the characters felt REAL. Stress on the real. They felt like real people in an actual family since, let's face it, we all have family members that are a bit messed up. The story developed well and I loved how Liz gave backstories on her family which really gave the story, in a whole, more depth. I really recommend this for a teen who knows tough times or is interested in family problems. Again, a very good book that had real characters who jumped off the page.
