This is a quirky book that is anything but predictable. I love the character of Pigeon. She is not treated as magical and amazing; she is just a normal character, and very believable. She gives them an outlet for their problems, though she has problems of her own. All the characters have distinct personalities and are far from perfect. Nicky 's father is also interesting. He is so caught up in himself that he forgets about everyone else. The book has many side plots, but it is fairly easy to read and flows well. The author writes about some serious things, but the story has many fun and funny parts. Signed by Zelda is moving, interesting, and unique. I highly recommend it.
