For Antonia MacPherson, lying is a way of life. If it weren't for her best friend, Harrison, and a tiny ball of fluff named Pistachio, she would be miserable. No matter what she does, her mother thinks she's wrong. Her younger sister, Katherine the Great, takes notes on Ant's misbehaviors, which she keeps in a spiral notebook for their parents. Her older sister, Your Highness Elizabeth, says Ant is in training to be a juvenile delinquent, Harrison smells like a salami sandwich, and Pistachio should be put out of his misery. With all those royal opinions, who's going to listen to an Ant? But when a teacher takes Ant under her wing, Ant's way of life may have to change. Just Carol likes the truth. And she won't take anything less.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Perfect pitch! As in music, in audiobook narration it is much to be desired. And Ariadne Meyers possesses it here. She delivers the first-person narration of the gloomy, garrulous, gutsy Ant (Antonia) McPhereson as it must be read--with a sneer and a heavy dollop of (at times, well-deserved) self-pity. Certain she must have been adopted, Ant struggles to find love and acceptance beyond her relationship with her aging dog, Pistachio, and her unkempt best friend, Harrison. Meyers's impeccable character voicings of the spectacular cast of characters in this first novel will have listeners longing for an uninterrupted afternoon of listening. She brings them all to life: the too sweet and supercilious sisters, Your Highness Elizabeth and Katherine the Great; Ant's long suffering dad and testy mother; her earnest art teacher, Just Carol; and the cantankerous assistant principal. This one's a gem! T.B. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine

    Misunderstood by her parents, a middle child torn between wanting to be noticed and wanting to be invisible takes solace in the idea of a fantasy family, and in the company of her dog and her quirky best friend. "This funny and touching novel portrays the tug-of-war within this strong heroine and taps into very real emotions," said PW. Ages 10-14.
