2.0 out of 5 stars poor
I wasn't a massive fan of this book. It took a while to get into and it was slow moving, dealing with the issue of teen pregnancy far too lightly in my opinion.
Those who prefer such issues to be handled delicately and (in my opinion) unrealistically should give it a go. But, if you are like me and prefer some grit/emotion then miss this one out.

I devoured this book - & as many other P Zindel books as I could find in the hinterland of Edinburgh in the 70's. It 'spoke' to my own sense of alienation, loneliness & growing awareness being completely out of step with the rest of the world in a way that no other books had at that time.
All of his books - "Hamburger..." "The Effect of Gamma Radiation..." "The Undertaker's Gone Bananas" & more - although a bit 'of their time' still appeal, I believe, to any young person or teenager who feels like a freak, geek or weirdo, & can't understand why they don't seem to "fit" the world around them & why they're starting to think that they're not sure they even want to...
These books made me feel less isolated & alone, & gave me hope that my future would get better. (It did!) It's really tragic that they seem to be so hard to get hold of, especially now that the formulaic Bella & the vampire/werewolf nonsense is so ubiquitous. Really worth a re-evaluation...
