I won't make this a lengthy review, only because this book is near and dear to my heart, as I grew up reading it. I remember reading this all the time, especially when I had nothing else to read. It was my fallback. A Nook book page run by some friends posted it for $1.99 as a Nook book, so I snapped it up. This, in my opinion, is a classic middle grade book that girls will love.
Although it was, and is a childhood favorite of mine, something bothers me now that I've re-read it at 19. Is it me, or do Alex, Stevie, and Joey speak in a manner that does not beget their ages? I mean they're supposed to be 12, 10 and 8, but they don't talk like it. They talk like teenagers. I don't know, but I've never met an 8 year old that talks like Joey. Or a 10 year old that talks like Stevie. Maybe it's because I'm 19 now, but the way they speak just bothers me.
Other that that this story is great. Told through regular 1st person POV, scripts/transcripts, diary entries, etc, it's a fun novel with great and funny characters girls can relate to.
