Jenny B Jones' In Between ~ Reviewed

Book Jacket:

Katie Parker knows life isn't fair. After all, when your mom's in jail and your dad's a no-show, you figure things just aren't going your way. But hey, she can deal. Then she finds out she's being sent to live with a foster family- in In Between, Texas.

What kind of town has a name like In Between? And what kind of family wants a kid like her? One thing's for certain: None of this will be good. Sure enough- thanks to some new "friends" and her non-Mom's crazed mother, Mad Maxine- life sails right past bad to stinking.

Then again, she's just a temporary kid, they're just temporary parents, and she definitely doesn't have any ideas about making any of this permanent. God, on the other hand, may have other plans altogether.

My Review.

Jenny B Jones has to be one of the most hilarious writers ever to come up with the character of Katie Parker. Katie not only is funny smart aleck, teens can relate with her, hands down.

In the first book of the series, as soon as you're introduced to Katie, you get that feeling of what she has gone through in her life. But the book isn't just a story about a serious teenager with a problem. This book will have you rolling around on the floor laughing, since almost everything that comes out of Katie's mouth will make you LOL. I recommend that you put In Between on the top of your "To Do" list.
