The early 1990's: there’s no internet, phones have cords, VHS
is still a thing, and Daisy Radcliffe’s family is disintegrating. As the
stability of Daisy’s old life disappears, she is set adrift into the odd
territory between adolescence and adulthood. Susie Taylor’s sharp, quick-witted
prose carries Daisy through a maze of awkward parties, drugs, and rec rooms-
new friends, social adversaries, and sexual awakenings. A Strikingly perceptive
and honest debut, even weirder than before is coming-of-age story exploring the
weirdness of growing up Gen X, and the freedom found outside the norm.
