Fifteen-year-old Iris gets into hilarious trouble when her mother goes on vacation and leaves her alone.
A fine athlete, auto mechanic, and straight-A student with a taste for poetry, philosophy, and the quiet life, Iris makes a memorable, utterly engaging narrator, and she comes with a supporting cast that more than keeps up with her. She deals creatively with each contretemps and, as a reward, meets Byron, a combination of "biker, Michelangelo sculpture, and Chippendale dancer" who is a total soulmate. Keller (Desdemona Moves On, 1992, not reviewed, etc.) leaves the two planning to take in a museum—or maybe a track meet—together. Inspired.
