Review by

Basically this is the novelisation of the rather popular movie of the same name. The difference here is that the book is told from first person Jess point of view, which means some of the really funny scenes between Jules and her parents were missed out.The writing is good, though, and it does a nice job of fleshing out the script. It also makes some of it a little clearer for those of us like me who couldn't always follow the Indian, or the soccer.
