Summary
Meet Raine Rassaby, an 18-year-old precocious Jewish girl whose graduation from high school hangs in the balance when she transfers to St. Ursula's Catholic School. She meets her troubled guidance counselor, Al Klepatar, falls in and out of unrequited love, and tries to make the world a better place.
Critique
Funny, original, and unusual. Part 'annoying teenager', part 'wise sage', Raine is definitely an insightful character who struggles with everyday problems while trying to rise above them and rid the world of nuclear weapons. Recommend.
