I'll give it one star because there is a semblance of decent story telling in the last 1/5 of the book. If you like the jumbled format of mTV, you may like this book. Shame on the Newberry committee.

This book very readable and funny, the characters are well-developed and interesting. I know it's intended for young adults but I have really enjoyed reading Ms. Perkins' books and plan to keep on reading her work.
