Publisher's Summary

Life was tragic enough before this spring started. With a distinct lack of boobage and an arse so big that birds of prey could nest within its shadows, Jess Jordan is saddled with the Goddess Flora for a best friend, a Britney Spears look-alike so gorgeous that one grain of her divine dandruff could make the blind see again. Jess knows that her soul mate is Ben Jones, a divine mixture of Leonardo DiCaprio, Prince William, and Brad Pitt who oozes mystery and charisma. But the campaign to get Ben to notice her brings on a cavalcade of mortification and disaster, including, but not limited to, a minestrone soup explosion that takes place in her bra and a schoolwide viewing of a videotape that features a topless Jess referring to her breasts as "Bonnie" and "Clyde".

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.

Hilarious!!!!

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.

Brigit Jones Diary meets Clueless

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.
