Hardcoverpages. Aug 27, Sayantani Dasgupta rated it oittle liked it. It sounds exhausting grampnt fun at the same time! There isnt really a point to it except some girl gets caught at a keg party with her best friend who is from sweden i think and then she finds out shes pregnant and her parents are divorced and her dad is a hippy that has the same ideas as sr amina with fast food and stuff so the main girl moves with her weird hippy dad then he sends her away so rgamont tells her best friend that shes being sent away to canada for a kanoo trip t The book was extreamly weird and i dont think i recomend it for anyone.
