This young adult book is a pleasure no matter how old you are. It's funny, and, as the title states, charming. Another plus that teachers will appreciate is the author interview and discussion questions.
i actually enjoyed this. i had picked the book up so many times at the store and put it back. i saw the CD here on PBS and figured, WHY NOT. The story was a bit predictable, but Jess was a fun character to watch muddle through everything. Will probably look for the sequel on audio CD now.
