The title of this novel hints at the ironic humor that characterizes its unconventional coming-of-age story. At the age of 14, Emily realizes that the dysfunctional people in her family and upscale suburban community are not credible adults. It’s clear that she will have to grow into maturity on her own. Narrator Tavia Gilbert deftly captures Emily's vulnerability, confusion, and wry analysis as she encounters people and experiences that make her journey unique. Gilbert's unaffected presentation avoids sensationalizing Emily's rough language or the occasional description of a sexual encounter. Subtle shifts of tone are all Gilbert needs to give Emily a convincing voice through her ten-year journey of transformation from troubled adolescent to her own version of successful adult.
