Writing and performing songs, such as the no-holds-barred Psycho Dad, is how Pip and her friends assert their autonomy. Each girl struggles under the weight of parental pressure, particularly from dominant and in some instances violent, father figures. The girls’ diverse but equally affecting relationships with their parents, gives the story balanced doses of hope, sentimentality, anger and heartbreak.    This book has fantastic energy to it.
