This girl is different... That's what Evie has always told herself and it's true. Home-schooled by her counter culture mom, she's decided to see what high school is like for the first time for her senior year. And what a year it is. As it turns out, it's not just Evie who's Different. Lots of people are. Many of her assumptions about others are turned on their heads as she makes friends with kids her own age for the first time, discovers what's good and what's bad about high school, and learns lessons about power and its abuse both by the administration and by Evie herself.

This book surprised me. I started out thinking it would be a charming light read, then it morphed into a feminist propoganda like read, and then...then it became- different. And despite disagreeing with many of Evie's (the protagonist) beliefs, I agreed with her about the important things and enjoyed her as a character. She certainly had her flaws, and they were numorous, but they made her human and at the heart of everything she meant well. The story was heartfelt and carried out well. By the time I was halfway through the book I was engrossed and couldn't put it down. I needed to find out how everything was resolved, and for the most part I loved how the book concluded. All the characters were wonderful and realistic (or at least most of them were). It was just the kind of book I was in the mood for, stand alone, short, contemporary fiction, happy ending, perfect for a Saturday read.
