If I could write a novel with a quirky and awesome title character, it would be Astrid Krieger. Calling her a Firecracker would be an understatement. Calling her a pain in the @$$ would probably be more appropriate. She comes from an incredibly wealthy family, and has always attended fancy private schools. She has always caused enough problems to become expelled from said private schools. The latest expulsion is the final straw for her father who gives her the worst punishment she could imagine--she has to attend public school..... with.. like... the public. Part of her punishment is to continue to speak with the dean of the private school who is also a psychologist to "make her normal." In one of their sessions, she strikes a deal: If Astrid follows through with the Dean's orders, he has to allow her back in to private school. To find out if she succeeds and the hilarious LOL moments en route, pick up Firecracker, written by New Girl and SNL writer David Iserson.
My rating: 3.5/5 stars
