This book was on the suggested reading list compiled by librarian Nancy Pearl for my NPR station, KUOW. A journey through adolescence by a nerdy girl whose only defense against teenage evil is her obsession with Danish astronomer Brahe Tycho and with Greek mythology. The history of the former commune on which she lives with her mother seems more obscure than the ancient objects of her obsession. She befriends the new girl in town, and together they embark on life-changing journeys of their own. The insights of teenage female dynamics were so accute, I kept checking to verify that this was actually written by a man.
