I have read every book in the series and let me just tell you I could NOT put it down. There I am at midnight reading the book, there I am shopping, reading the book, everywhere, I AM RE
ADING the book! I love how it talks about faith and sounds very realistic. I definitely recommend this book for a young Christian teen/tween.
On the Loose
On occasion I look in the mirror and think who is that old lady, cause I know I'm still a teen. So when I find an author who can cover the decades from teen to maturity, (sounds better than old), I'm delighted. This series is thoughtful, witty, and adds such a spiritual message your heart will be lifted.
It is refreshing to read a book that has a taste of reality, is cute but not ridiculous, and does not rely upon profanity to shock the reader. She has real life concerns portrayed with warmth and aplomb. If I did not have a family member as eccentric, I would have not believed the grand mother character, but since I do, even she was believable. It is a really good book.
