How could Ant MacPherson possibly tell her parents the truth all of the time? They never understand anything! The only person in her family Ant admits to being related to is her little dog, Pistachio. She writes notes in her journal to her "real mom" and tells people at school that she's adopted. But when a concerned teacher sees the truth about Ant and her lies, it seems that Ant may be in for a big change. . . .

Funny, moving, and completely believable, this is a fine first novel. (Booklist, starred review)
