Fueled by the bighearted sounds of '80s rock and roll, plus a dash of The Goonies and Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and large doses of Cyndi Lauper's girl-power joy, Confusion is Nothing New is a coming of age story, as well as a drama and comedy, about friendship, girls, and the tension between fathers and daughters. It's also a story about girls who understand that it's good to make things, but breaking things is okay too.
In fact, sometimes breaking things is required.

Praise for How to Avoid Extinction:
"Acampora tucks laughter, tears, light doses of life wisdom, impressive fossils, and any number of appealing characters into this amiable odyssey." -- Booklist
"The transformative power of the American road trip is taken to new heights." -- School Library Journal
"Some of the chapter headings are funny enough to convince people to read the book all by themselves. " -- Kirkus Reviews
"Love plus laughter is pretty much an extinction-proof formula for a middle-grade book, and jokesters, dinosaur fans, and those looking for a satisfyingly hopeful family drama will find plenty to dig up and enjoy here." -- Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books
