This was one of those kid-walks-into-my-classroom-and-says-read-this books. Since the first one of these was a Percy Jackson, which led me to happiness, I'm making it a policy to do what they say. Unless it's Goosebumps, probably. As I told said kid, I found the narrator pretty ditzy at first, but otherwise this was pretty entertaining YA. It didn't 100% go where I expected, and the characters didn't get exactly what they wanted OR exactly what they secretly wanted and hadn't realized until the revelation. And the cooking, sewing, home-ec ruling middle-school brother was a solidly amusing sidekick.
