Editorial Reviews

Puget Sound Council
*no details*
VOYA - Lucy Schall
Zod Kendall, talented car mechanic and rally driver, and her boyfriend, Adam Harlow, race together and plan to attend the same college for engineering. Zod's super-mom, coping with her son's inappropriate behavior and her own marital problems, railroads Zod into a medical career by filling out the college application and arranging a personal tour of the college and the mother's sorority. Zod accepts her mother's choices and avoids telling Adam her new plans. The resulting migraines, nausea, and troubled dreams tell her that she is wrong. When she chooses to take a mother-arranged, makeup biology exam over the rally race that she promised to run with Adam, Adam confronts her and her family. Zod realizes her mistake, asserts herself, and opts for the race. Zod and Adam do not win, but Zod's family now might give her the space to make her own decisions while they work to solve their own problems. Middle school and junior high girls could find this happily-ever-after, career/romance novel appealing, but Zod's clueless responses throughout the story as well as the super-controlling mother's willingness to relent at the end are difficult to believe. Both the driving, ambitious father and the difficult older brother are not developed enough to be more than add-ons. Readers faced with similar situations usually experience more subtle pressures, and girls with less appealing choices might have difficulty relating to this affluent protagonist with seemingly endless opportunities.
