Seth is determined to make Miranda his girlfriend, but he is going to need some very good advice. Miranda has fantastic green eyes and really good muscles and a jealous ex-boyfriend who throws people into rivers. As for Miranda's father, he makes the ex-boyfriend look like a saint. Seth would also like to save his parents' marriage and write a brilliant play. To meet his goals, Seth finds that the best advice comes from a teen magazine called Dolly. In this latest comical novel from popular Australian writer Doug MacLeod, teenage protagonist Seth Parrot relates the hilarious trials of his family and his own bizarre attempts to court Miranda. Dealing with a melodramatic younger brother, a housing inspector bent on destroying the Parrot home, and a gardener who would prefer all flowers dead, Seth navigates his way into Miranda's heart.
