Editorial Reviews

"Becky Lennox...is a character that readers will love right from the hilarious opening paragraph. I love the message the story delivered: if you have a sense of humour, an annoying family, and an open heart, you already have everything you need to survive."

— Jury Citation, QWF Childrens and YA Literature Prize

"Delightful and spot on for the middle grade experience...what a fun choice for a mother daughter book club. Laugh out loud funny and great opportunities for moms to share their own sixth grade experiences as they flood back after reading this."

— Just Deb - http://www.debamarshall.com

"The page design is appealing, with great doodles on almost every page..."

— Resource Links

"...a simply told yet fast-paced and colourful blend of humour and drama...well-rounded, credible characters...This book will certainly appeal to female readers. Highly Recommended."
