Dolores: Seven Stories About Her by Bruce Brooks

"There was more to do than music, of course. She was a good human."

That's what Dolores's brother Jimmy thinks about her when she's seven years old and can scream Nirvana lyrics at the top of her lungs in a voice just as angry and knowing as any teenager's. Dolores is a force to be reckoned with. As she grows up through these seven stories, you can call her what you want — strangely beautiful, weird, quirky, a loner, brave — it doesn't matter. Because Dolores always will be, quite simply, Dolores.
