This is an amazing book about a young girl named Dora. It's a modern twist on the classic "coming-of-age" plot. She goes through problems with her family and peers. She has a cynical personality, a bit of sarcasm, a unique view on the world, and a foul mouth.

The main character Doreen is in the summer before her freshman year of High School. She and her only friend Ted aren't exactly the most socially accepted kids, so they spend most of their time listening to the Pixies. Until one day, Doreen's sister Tracey gets a boyfriend named Matthew, who takes an interest in Doreen. Doreen gets tired of being walked all over by the end of the book and ends up standing up for herself.
