"None of the Above" is a sensitive novel of teen-age problems, the search for identity in a confusing world, the alien feeling within the context of an alien family, the discovery of answers to essentially unanswerable problems.

"None of the Above" is well-written and the characters well-conceived. I'm not sure about the ending—sentimentally, but I don't think realistically, conceived. (p. 8)
