Yes, the nanny thing has been done a million times before but I still find this book very enjoyable. Martin does a good job showing the progress of reformation for really jerky hocky players, Esa being no different. I also liked that Michelle wasn't perfect either. She does her fair share of stupid things as well. My only complaint was that for someone who is a professional nanny she was way too attached to Nell.
