The main character, Jessica, is portrayed with the blend of kid and adult that most feel at this age. Written in present tense it allows the reader to experience things as the character does. Jessica has a whirlwind going on in her life.
The grandparents were very entertaining with their various physical attributes and their colorful language when dealing with each other. They added good humor.
This is a very good read for anyone age of 12 or older. There are a few scenes that can be a little scary with creatures, but nothing that I felt most kids would think were too intense. At less than 200 pages and a quickly paced plot, this was a quick read.
