Contents

Plot

This book is written from the perspective of Rachel Robinson, who is an overachiever and perfectionist. She tries to help her older sister, Jessica, with her acne problem. She resents her older brother, Charles, who was expelled from boarding school. Rachel feels Charles gets all the attention in her family, even if it is negative, and that he is driving their parents to breaking point. She also resents that her brother gets so much attention from teenage girls. In the book, Rachel has to deal with her crush on Charles' tutor, Paul Mediros,(who in the end dates their cousin Tarren), and the fact that the best looking boy in ninth grade, Jeremy "Dragon" Kravitz (at least, to Stephanie, Allison and Rachel) is interested in her. Through family counseling and a trip to Ellis Island, the Robinson family learns how to put aside their differences and become a closer family.
