Meanwhile, Jess's death-obsessed Granny moves into her bedroom, along with her grandfather's remains; her hypochondriac dad, who sends her daily "horrorscopes" like "You will fall asleep with your mouth open, and a family of earwigs will move in", acts strange about Jess staying with him this summer; and her longtime friend Fred, a television violence addict and closet thumbsucker, has decided that he can't stand being around her. Jess is determined to make things right...but with her offbeat sense of humor and her wildly active imagination, things get complicated along the way.

"These junior Bridget Joneses have plenty of charm." (School Library Journal)
I only got this book because Katherine Kellgren was the narrator and there wasn't anything else that seemed interesting at the time. I was putting off listening to it because I didn't think the topic would be of interest. I was wrong. Very very funny. The target audience is young adults. I recommend it for anyone. Best book so far this year.
This story was just plain fun. Not to mention hysterically funny. This book was an absolutely delightful break from the current crop of grim (if fantastically written) paranormal YA's that are out now.
