Liza does not like her mom's boyfriend. When she discovers that he works for an oil company accused of environmental harm, she vows to expose the company and make it pay for the damage. Her efforts to form a new club at school, Girls for Renewable Resources, Really (GRRR), is comical but Liza is determined to not only get rid of the man in her mom's life but also to really help the people in Guatamala who have been so horrifically affected by the large oil company's actions. A great hi-lo read for teens interested in environmental issues.
