Her hands lay inert and upturned on her lap probably stunned, she thinks, by the hideousness of the skirt underneath them. Centre seam puckered, zipper mangled, it's handmade in a way that makes people say, Did you sew that yourself? when they mean, How can you wear that thing? But she made it the day after he died, and she talked to him in her head the whole time. Which is why it looks like hell and why she had to wear it anyway.

Biology is not Dree's thing. Equally heinous are English, Social Studies, her sister and mother, not to mention Edmonton in general. Toronto is where she belongs - specifically the upcoming Renegade Craft Fair.

Mercifully, escape is imminent: on her fifteenth birthday, she will get the special fund her father promised, and the day after that, she'll be on WestJet Flight 233 to Toronto. Instead, her dad has a fatal heart attack, and all she finds are clues leading to the ominous Alberta Psychiatric Hospital where her parents once worked.

Along the way: two fires, a family scandal, nineteen sassy sock creatures named Marcel, a new friend, a mystery, a stepmother who's maybe sympathetic after all, the unceasing misery of school and the search for a proper way to grieve a father.

    " Cute and enjoyable, if not too deep. Every character mentioned has some role to play in the drama, of course. But I loved the excerpts from the narrator's craft blog and it was cute and felt like an accurate voice. Plus it's Canadian and who doesn't love that? "

    " Odd, yet very funny and touching story. Somewhat confusing, but perhaps that's in line with the feelings of this teen. "

    " I liked this a lot. Quirky, but not to over the top. "
