About this title

Synopsis:

It's absolutely disgusting being fourteen. You've got no rights whatsoever. Your parents get to make all the decisions: Who gets the single bedroom. How much allowance is enough. What time you must come in. Who is a proper friend. What your report card is supposed to look like. And what your parents don't tell you to do, the school does.None of this seems fair to Lauren Allen, but then she finds a way to fight back. She can even sue her parents for malpractice...can't she? "Entangled in a web of family friction, adolescent uncertainty, and romantic longing, Lauren slowly learns to make decisions that are right for her....Humor abounds, nicely balancing the reality." -- Children's Book Review Service"Ruefully and relentlessly funny." -- The New YorkerPaula Danziger lives in New York City and Bearsville, New York."This novel is as much fun as Danziger's The Cat Ate My Gymsuit." -- School Library Journal

From the Publisher:

Lauren Allen's life is the pits. Bobby Taylor's just jilted her. Her ninth-grade teachers are demerit-crazy. And she has to share her bedroom with messy younger sister who wants to be a stand-up comic, while her older sister seems to get everything she wants. Between her parents, her two sisters, and school, Lauren feels she's got no rights at all.

But then Lauren takes a course, "Law for Children and Young People," and meets Zack, an eighth grader who's "nice and attractive and bright and fuuny." Suddenly Lauren realizes that there are solutions to her problems. She can protest unfair polices at school. She can stand up to the kids who call her a cradle robber for going out with Zack. And she can sue her parents for malpractice...can't she?
