I read this when I was a kid & would have given it 4 stars then. I liked it much more then but I still think the same things about the characters now as I did then. Liz is an idiot, her boyfriend's a jerk, Maggie needs to get it together & know her worth, & the guy she goes on a date with was ok. Reading this a s a kid I was alot more sympathetic to Liz going through the whole abortion ordeal. Reading this now I'm impressed & surprised that Paul Zindel wrote a book that dealt with sex & abortion & birth control & all that jazz way back in 1969. Kudos to Mr. Zindel for doing that.

Louise Keel Oh finally finally! I'm reading a review with which I can agree completely! I read this book in my teens and I'm always hearing it spoken of in reverential tones, so I recently re-read it to see if I missed something the first time around. Yes oK, difficult issues but I found all the characters deeply unsympathetic, I really did. For me your assessment of them is right on the button! :)
