"Spurred on by nineties "family values" campaigns and determined to better herself through education, a teen mom talks her way into college.

Wryly riffing on feminist literary tropes, it documents the survival of a demonized single mother figuring things out"--

"In this novel, Ariel Gore is a teen mom, aspiring writer, and feminist witch trying to get a college education during the first Bush administration, all the while combating queer scapegoating, domestic violence, and high-interest student loans"--
