Summary
  • "Almost Famous meets Daisy Jones and the Six in this funny, wise and tender novel about a fourteen-year-old girl's coming of age in 1970s Baltimore, caught between her straight-laced family and the progressive family she nannies for - who happen to be secretly hiding a famous rock star and his movie star wife for the summer"--
  • 1970s Baltimore. Mary Jane loves cooking with her mother, singing in her church choir, and enjoying her family's subscription to the Broadway Show Tunes of the Month record club. Then she lands a summer job as a nanny for the daughter of a local doctor. The house may look respectable on the outside, but inside it is a literal and figurative mess: clutter on every surface, impeachment bumper stickers on the doors, cereal and takeout for dinner. And even more troublesome: The doctor is a psychiatrist who has cleared his summer for one important job-- helping a famous rock star dry out. Over the course of the summer Mary Jane introduces her new household to crisply ironed clothes and a family dinner schedule, and has a front-row seat to a liberal world of sex, drugs, and rock-and-roll (not to mention group therapy). She will arrive at September with a new idea about what she wants out of life, and what kind of person she is going to be. -- adapted from jacket
