It was very full, in terms of what the creators put into building that world. Her iphone style phone had a carrot on the back, and the provider was PB&J. There were tons more details like this.

I was maybe 12-14 years old. I read it in 85 or 86, and I think it was directed toward teens/young adults. Cover was a spaceship with lots of orange and black. 3rd person as I recall.
