Good idea, but it should have been a stand-alone.

Honest, funny, and FREAKING ADORABLE. Would my daughters hate me if I said I wished they were more like her?

It's not perfect -- I have some issues with bringing up a second conflict 100 pages from the end -- but there's so much to LOVE in this one, that I'm not going to complain.

Diverting. I recommend the audio version.

"I'm listening to the audio. Like with most humor books, listening to it is SO much better than reading it; I'm finding it hilarious, if uneven. "

Sara Nelson
“I m not about to tell him that I am just like Anna and Emma, an adulteress. My books are my secret lovers, the friends I run to to get away from the daily drudgeries of life, to try out something new, and yes, to get away, for a few hours, from him. He doesn't need to know that my books are the affairs I don't have. ”
Sara Nelson, So Many Books, So Little Time: A Year of Passionate Reading

Mo Willems
“A book, being a physical object, engenders a certain respect that zipping electrons cannot. Because you cannot turn a book off, because you have to hold it in your hands, because a book sits there, waiting for you, whether you think you want it or not, because of all these things, a book is a friend. It’s not just the content, but the physical being of a book that is there for you always and unconditionally.”
Mo Willems

Nora Roberts
“She surrounded herself with books at work and at home. Her living space was a testament to her first and abiding love with shelves jammed with books tables crowded with them. She saw them not only as knowledge entertainment comfort even sanity but as a kind of artful decoration. ”
Nora Roberts, Key Of Knowledge

“A well-composed book is a magic carpet on which we are wafted to a world that we cannot enter in any other way.”
Caroline Gordon

William Styron
“A good book should leave you....slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading it.”
