    I really enjoyed this book. The narrator is great. The story flows nicely, even though I could predict some of it. I would highly recommend it. Immediately after finishing, I started looking for other books by the same author.

    This book is super slow and it takes at least 6 cds to get into the story. I found myself skipping to the final cd to see how it ended because I couldn't take it dragging on and on with one horrible thing happening to the main character over and over.

    This is a fun book and I wish a sequel would follow. Good humor and lots of WHAT NEXT ??? Hard to put down. And Jo is really smart with a great take on things. I liked her immensely... The ending was a tad abrupt, but overall, very enjoyable listening nonetheless.
