There are so many great things in the book that I would love to tell you but I don’t want to spoil it for you. I really enjoyed the book. There were so many moments in this book that had me laughing. My favorite character had to be Nanny Lou, she is such a character.
Book 2 in the series called Dear Dwayne is set to be released April 2009. I can’t wait to read that one.
I have to say Thank You to Dorothy for sending me this book and allowing me to be a part of the tour.
