First of all, the art alone is beautiful - Ferris turns the interior of a notebook into a lush bic-pen-crosshatched explosion of emotional expressive art. The narrator/artist is Karen, a ten year-old wolf girl. She's Harriet the Spy meets Anne Frank mashed with Maurice Sendack. She weaves a complicated story of family secrets, wartime tragedies, burgeoning sexuality, the social unrest of the 60's and the difficultly of growing up weird through the eyes of a character who doesn't understand it all.
