Every Last Cuckoo

Every Last Cuckoo - Kate Maloy This book had such promise! The writer writes very well, but her ideas are somewhat all over the place. At some points, she makes such a wonderful observation, and then at other places, well, it's just dumb. (A kid's grades will fall because she learns to drive?)

Also, the author doesn't seem to know how teenagers function/behave/speak at all. Not at all at all.

The "bad guy" turns himself in? Seriously?

However, I love the overall concept of this book. I was hoping for so much more.
