This is the second book of Ms Myers that I have read and I have to say she has hilarious characters...from the protagonist to her "mama" and the ever-faithful Cheng or C.J., I sat with a grin on my face the whole time I read the book. The story kind of drags a bit but you don't notice with all the funny things everyone says. Good light-hearted read and a surprise twist at the end.
