This is the diary of a year in the life of Erin Costello, ordinary teenage girl and drama queen. Erin is a hilariously unreliable narrator with an over-active imagination. Her parents split up, and she thinks its because her fathers had an affair with her teacher. She sees her mothers new boyfriend talking furtively on his phone, and decides hes a drug runner. Her little brother spends way too much time on his computer, and she thinks hes downloading porn. And this is all going on against the backdrop of the school musical, DRACULA ... with very funny and unexpected results.

Erin is an airhead. She exagerates way more than i would have preferred and it was very unbelievable. The writing itself wasn't bad. Her life could have been worse and she's not very sensitive to feelings other than her own. Okay, this is a kinda mean comment and I'm not saying that the book was bad- just that the main character was hard for me to relate to other than the fact that I sometimes think my life is a catastophe too. ;)
