A room is not much. It is not arms holding you. Not a kiss on the forehead. Not a packed lunch or a remembered birthday. Just a room. But for 17-year-old Zoe, struggling to shed the suffocating responsibility of her alcoholic mother and the controlling guilt of her grandmother, a rented room on Lorelei Street is a fierce grab for control of her own future.

Zoe rents her room from Opal Keats, an eccentric old lady who has a difficult past of her own, but who chooses to live in the possibility of the future. Zoe tries to find that same possibility in her own future, promising that she will never go crawling back. But with all odds against her, can a 17-year-old with a job slinging hash make it on her own? Zoe struggles with this worry and the guilt of abandoning her mother as she goes to lengths that even she never dreamed she would in order to keep the room on Lorelei Street.

    " I think I "read this wrong" because I didn't love it as much as everyone else. "

    " Teen problem fiction -- in this case an alcoholic mother, dead father & lots of parental neglect. Zoe decides her ticket out of her soul-killing situation is to rent a room from an eccentric character, Opal, who lives on Lorelei Street. Zoe is a fully realized, resourceful and sympathetic character who I think would appeal to teens living in tough situations themselves and are looking for a way out. Nothing about living on your own as a teen is romanticized, and Zoe is faced with some difficult decisions in order to keep her hard-won freedom. Some readers might not agree with her choices, but they will empathize with Zoe's plight. A good book for discussion and readalike for fans of Nancy Werlin's The Rules of Survival. "

    " This is a beautiful story of a girl without proper support or experience trying to get to a safe and stable place - essentially trying to find a room of her own. It's sad and very honest. Highly recommended! "
