KIRKUS REVIEW

It's twenty years hence, kids, so steel yourselves. Y'see, Michael writes suicide-rock numbers for teen-idol Bobby Black (ne Schwartz), and they both dig Lisa, and they all talk dirty, and things are real bad 'cause there's shortages of everything, and ghetto warfare even, and the millionaires are hoarding everything and controlling the government, and Nader was right, and Orwell was right, and Lisa wants a farm, and Bobby gets shot by the peace forcers, and Michael joins the revolution, and Lisa recites all the words of that old 1950's song, ""Bobby's Girl,"" and Michael says: ""This is all very juvenile."" And he's right.
