The responsibilities of a child of divorced parents to herself and her family is the theme of [Hey, That's My Soul You're Stomping On]…. Although the theme is apt and some of the characters well-drawn, the plot is dull and there are a multitude of adolescent novels that cover the same ground. Its best feature is the sympathetic and non-stereotypic images of older people that it presents.
