“I have promised to be a model citizen daughter… I have confined my Shrimp time to making out with him in the Java the Hut supply closet and quick feels on the cold hard sand at the beach during our breaks, but enough is enough…. Delia and I are planning a party at Wallace and Shrimp’s house and I am spending the night whether Sid and Nancy notice or not. I will be as wild as I wanna be.”

After being kicked out of a fancy New England boarding school, Cyd Charisse is back home in San Francisco with her parents, Sid and Nancy, in a household that drives her crazy. Lucky for Cyd, she’s always had Gingerbread, her childhood rag doll and confidante.
After Cyd tests her parents’ permissiveness, she is grounded in Alcatraz (as Cyd calls her room). But when her incarceration proves too painful for the whole family, Cyd’s parents decide to send her to New York to meet her biological father and his family, whom Cyd has always longed to know.
Summer in the city is not what Cyd Charisse expects – and Cyd isn’t what her newfound family expects, either.

I read this book while in a car, so I may not exactly remeber what all I liked about this book! But I love that almost everywhere there’s a computer. (;

I thought Shrimp was kind of a funny name for a guy, and the book says his middle name is Flash. So.? That left me a little puzzled on his name issue, but overall he’s a pretty good character in this book. I look forward to reading the rest of the series as soon as I can. I was really surprised that this book had more meaning to it, than what it seems like. I’ve kinda figured that out in Cohn’s books, but it’s really captaviting even when my head hurt while I was trying to read on the road.

Well that’s all about I can write since we are about to go out to eat! I’ll have to add covers later, sorry about that.
