 About the Book 

Jennifer is a girl on the brink of adolescence and afflicted with all the attendant muddle and confusion.

Her homelife is somewhat strange (her father, Bob, insists on naked calisthenics every morning for the whole family and her gray-haired mother placidly goes along), she has no real friends (and therefore lives in her imagination much of the time) and yearns to be popular, more normal. And then her already off-center world is thrown completely topsy-turvy when she learns that her supposed parents are really her grandparents, that her mother fled years ago, and that, worse yet for someone about to turn thirteen, her real birthday is now much later in the year. Seeking escape both in her fantasies - her favorite book has long been Alice in Wonderland - and in real life - through her friendship with her obsequious new schoolmate, Bronwyn, and with the sinister Johnny, who dwells in a forgotten, never-consecrated church - Jennifer is about to undergo her own adventures in her own wonderland, with terrifing and final consequences she cannot (yet) even imagine.
