Maybe I was in a bad mood when I read this, or maybe Debbie Sue and Edwina officially crossed the line into Too Stupid To Live Territory.
I enjoyed the previous books, but this time "funny" came through as juvenile, with such gems as this, while they are pedaling a bike cart, being chased by a serial killer who is shooting at them with a gun: "Debbie Sue, this sucker ain't got brakes!" "They're on the handlebars" Debbie Sue called back. "How the f*ck am I supposed to put my feet on the handlebars?"
Unfortunately, that's about typical for this particular outing.
