Well, yes, but you could cite any number of other books. Contemporary
first-person YA novels (and even those for younger kids, like -Harriet the
Spy-) all sound like that. I read a neat, not really for young people, one
last year called -The Saskiad- that had a somewhat more sophisticated
version of the same tone.  (Much better than Holly Hollander, IMO.)
