Mary Lou Finney's story about her cousin, her love, her book, and her life keeps you turning pages when a new neighbor dies, her cousin gets hurt, and her love life takes a surprising turn. It starts out with Mary Lou doing the project just for school, not for joy, but when she finds out juicy, gossipy, revealing, embarassing, over-the-top, insane things, she has to write them down. But then one question rings in her head: How can she show it to her next English teacher, no matter how cool he or she is? And why did Alex Cheevey fall in love with her? And did Carl Ray, her cousin, really come to stay with them to find a job, or for another reason? What was the book Odyssey's meaning? And why was Beth Ann falling head-over-heels for every guy she could find? In her journal, Mary Lou asks these questions, finds the answers, and marvels at them, the way no other character you've read about does.
