"The fast-paced, clever writing . . . will keep teens eagerly reading and sharing passages with each other to the end." — BOOKLIST
With a Mad Cow for a mother, an eccentric psychotherapist for a father, and a dweeble for an older brother, it's no wonder sixteen-year-old Janet Bandry is ready to enter the Dark Phase of her life. As this determined British teenager sees it, the DP requires dressing in black, listening to jazz when she can find the right radio station, and thinking about Deep and Meaningful Things — when she isn't thinking about boys, what color to dye her hair, or whether her nose piercing is infected. Told in diary entries with a comical dose of melodrama, PLANET JANET shares the painfully funny travails of a winning new heroine who just knows she is destined for greatness.
