Ever get the feeling your life would qualify for National Disaster Relief? Say hello to Erin Costello.
Erin's pretty much your average teenage girl--except that her mother has all the maternal instincts of a black widow spider, and her dad is out of work and completely clueless. That's probably why they're divorced. Not that anyone except Erin seems to care. Certainly not Erin's sucky little brother Ben, who's too busy making money, or her best friend, Rami, who is turning into a fanatical environmental activist--with the emphasis on mental. And definitely not Creepazoid--Erin's mom's new boyfriend--who may or may not be a drug-dealing pervert disguised as a mild-mannered PE teacher! It's an eventful year for Erin Costello, but is her imagination running wild?

Erin is an airhead. She exagerates way more than i would have preferred and it was very unbelievable. The writing itself wasn't bad. Her life could have been worse and she's not very sensitive to feelings other than her own. Okay, this is a kinda mean comment and I'm not saying that the book was bad- just that the main character was hard for me to relate to other than the fact that I sometimes think my life is a catastophe too. ;)
