An alcoholic mother, a distracted father, a best friend who spends all his time with his new "girlfriend," and three relentless schoolyard bullies: Prinny Murphy's past, present, and future certainly are "tense." Adding to her misery, she still can't read… well enough to escape from remedial lessons with the dour Mrs. Dooks. But with the help of a kindly substitute teacher, Prinny discovers that life can be full of possibilities - and poetry. Sequel to “The nine lives of Travis Keating”. Followed by “The hidden agenda of Sigrid Sugden”. Grades 3-6. 2010.
