Recommends it for: books with swaggering attitudes but poorly written dialogue.
I got this book at a library booksale for a dollar and was a little taken aback by the tagline, "The Outrageous Novel Of One Tough Riot Grrl Against The World!" but then I read it and there is a FRIGGEN DOLPHIN BOY IN IT. And interspecific mitochondrial communion! Who can mess with that?
