Cute.\n\nThis was a mildly entertaining book although I definitely skimmed parts of it. Essie was a just a bit too good character for most parts of the book. And the job solution at the end was a bit too pat. \n\nBut entertaining.
A little preachy at time, but overall a cute book... I particularly enjoy the part where Ester, trying to teach her Sunday School class about miracles, ends up getting into a discussion on weather Jesus Christ does or does not have x-ray vision with a bunch of superhero loving 2nd grade boys.
