Inhaltsangabe: When her mother is hospitalized after suffering a mental breakdown, seventeen-year-old Mel redecorates the house, initiates a neighborhood clean-up, and becomes involved with a rock star.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 8-12-- Seventeen-year-old Melody Calder, a child of poverty and abuse, determines to change her life after her mother is institutionalized. She redecorates her London row house while working in an antique/junk shop, which she transforms into a profit-making business. At the same time, she turns the downtrodden and depressed local residents into lobbyists for their rightful social services and meets a rock star who falls in love with her. This novel has one of the biggest problems exhibited by a number of recent YA novels: too many of life's and society's problems crammed into one person's life. However, Mel's character commands respect; she is so likable that readers will identify with her and cheer her on. She's real--she makes mistakes but learns and grows from them. Her refusal to cave in to despair sets an example for her neighbors and readers alike. The language is characteristically British YA, but won't put off Americans. The plot is organized so that interest is picqued immediately and retained. Even though the happy romantic ending smacks of fairy tale, Mel's honest reaction to her mother's return home is refreshingly realistic. Overall, it's a worthwhile purchase, easily booktalked. --Ellen Ramsay, Amphitheater High School, Tucson, AZ
