Thirteen-year-old Nina narrates the story of her mother, Alice, who has always been responsible, proper, and totally uptight. Alice is stressed when her teaching job is eliminated, but that's nothing compared to the shock when her hippie father drops into their lives. Alice left home at sixteen and never looked back. Now Nina has a chance to know her grandfather and sides of her mother that have been hidden for years - including the piece that turns Alice into the Rosa Parks of the Taxpayers Civil Rights Movement when foreclosure issues arise in the neighborhood. A humorous moral tale of social justice and civic responsibility for adults and young adults - short enough to appeal to teens who don't like to read (reluctant readers) and those who are at-risk or troubled.
