Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (5 ):

This book is fast-paced, madcap, and hilariously way over the top, so teens who can handle comic exaggeration and some very frank sex talk will enjoy laughing their way through the crazy caper. Think Stephanie Plum meets Weekend at Bernie's. Teens will relate to the four friends' obsession and to the narrator's feelings as events around her spiral out of control. Surprises around every corner, clues, red herrings, betrayals, and a perfect first kiss make it a fun, light read for older teens who understand negative examples.
