What a weird, different book! I really didn't like it much at all - especially in the beginning. Every character was unpleasant and unlikeable. I guess that's the point, but I didn't enjoy reading it. When the Nanny came into the picture, things got better but not great. In the end I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it, either. The best part of the book was the glossary at the end - which was almost enough to bump it up to three stars, but not quite. I did like the candy bar naming bit, which made me laugh.
