Overview

INDIE KIDD CAN'T wait to be a cool grown-up. Actually, she wants to be a cool grown-up right now. Lately Indie's mother has been acting weird and treating her like she's a little kid. Indie thinks it would be cool to get a job and live wherever she wants, just like Caitlin, who rents a room in their house. She even wants to hang out with Caitlin rather than her own friends, who aren't grown up enough to understand how she feels. Little does she know that trying to be a cool grown-up could get her into a whole heap of trouble.


From the Trade Paperback edition.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Indie Kidd is trying to find her place in life and she thinks that part of that has to do with being grown-up. Maybe if she were grown-up her mom might start trusting her more with grown-up things the way she does with her cool nanny Caitlin. Well actually, she is a lodger in their home, but does the job of a nanny sometimes. Caitlin is nineteen, Scottish, and oh so cool. She has five pairs of platform trainers in five different colors. She has all kinds of perfumes and body sprays. Maybe if Indie could be more like Caitlin then her mom would see that she can be grown-up, too. This soon becomes her summer project, “how to make her mom see her, Indie, as grown-up.” Then one day something happens that causes Indie to realize she really just wants to be a kid and enjoy life, and that being a grown-up is not really all that cool.
