Superlative entertainment about the pains, pleasures and insanities of early adolescence. There's "Tug of War," a heartbreaker in which a child sings of how his divorcing parents are deciding who will take the TV, the liquor or the furniture, but asks in his plaintive chorus, Who's gonna take me? ; there's "It Isn't Fair," in which three girls, jealous of one another's varied talents, vent their hostilities only to learn that each has her own strong points; "Sisters." a sibling rivalry song, and others which explode with vitality in a brilliant musical revue for teens.
