it was amazing

Yeah sure, I read a Christmas story in the middle of the summer, but I regret nothing. Self-Help 101 was a lot of fun, a solid, heart-warming tale of family strife and teenage moodiness that works all year round.

I really liked the premise of the main character writing a book inside the book, and her little nuggets of advice for “taking over the world” fit in well with the story. It was a neat concept that added to the tone and didn't feel awkward.

The characters were well rounded and believable, and I especially enjoyed the older relatives - who easily could have devolved into caricatures - were actually the smartest and most sensible of the cast.

So yeah, all and all a great little book and I would recommend it as a fine way to pass a few hours (admittedly probably moreso around the holidays). I look forward to Ms Keltner’s next one!
