Let's just say... I'm ten-year-old cafeteria fringe. Current label-nerd, may be freak in near future. That said, best book EVER and will provide sustenance to that amazing,awesome,nonconformist,freethinking,creative astonishingness known as THE CAFETERIA FRINGE! P.S. I am extremely mad at the Library Journal for saying, "Out of the cafeteria fringe, and on to meaningful experiences." Excuse me?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! This implies that they a)left the CF and b)could only have those meaningful experiences after "moving on" from being CF. They remained themselves. They remained CF. They remained all those wondrous qualities described above. They just left their comfort zones and extended beyond their labels. Hear that? It's the sound of labels being ripped off. They left comfort zones to have those meaningful experiences,not CFhood. Sorry about that. Rant over.

I enjoyed the parts where the author was talking about the specific kids she followed, but didn't care for her commentary. I know that added to it and explained further what was going on with the kids, but got boring to me.
