llie McGregor's list of problems is longer than movie credits. House renovations have forced Allie to share her room with mouse-loving little sister, Sarah. Her dad, Will, calls Allie 'The Hormonal One' during his popular radio program. Her brother, Riley, is just plain gross. Her best friend Lou is fighting with Allie's new friend, Romy. Oh, and Allie's mum has cancer.
Lawson demonstrates her insight into the teenager's hopes and fears by writing this story with both sensitivity and a great sense of fun.
