Joss says 'I think I like boundaries'; but with a father seemingly having an affair with one of his students, an anxious mother, a crush on a local Adonis and a sexually fixated (formerly platonic) male friend, the fences and boundaries that she likes so much appear to be collapsing. The book's elder statesman character, Weezie Trilling, puts her finger on the button - 'People can have many different kinds of attachments, you know. And they don't always fall into neat categories.' So, there we are, problems solved! It was very readable even though not much happened. Recommended for mid-secondary, especially girls.
