Although sometimes I felt like this was a little slow going, it showed a girl's reaction as she moved into a new school, made new friends, reconciled herself to her interests as opposed to the popular interests. There is a lot of character development, owing to her upbringing and ability to think outside of the box. A coming of age story.
An interseting read about a girl who comes from a Hippie type family that moves constantly and she learns what roots are all about. I found this interesting because I also came from a hippie family and moved more than 20 times during the years I was in school, so I could relate.
Daughter of hippy, transient parents. Unusual life, interesting story good for girls.
I thought it was interesting but atypical of most young adult novels.
