The Girl Scout Cookie money is missing, and the dog just ate the baby tooth off the nightstand. A daughter is headed for the prom in a limo that smells of Southern Comfort, and somebody's pregnant who shouldn't be. In this collection of 70 essays, Los Angeles Times columnist Chris Erskine goes behind the lines of the American Dream and finds that-Gasp! Horror! Giggles-it's not always perfect. In fact, it's not always fun. But it's the real stuff of raising four kinds on the edge of America's edgiest city.
