I would lend this book to a friend, except that I'd want to read it over and over again!

Review by Gabe

The main character, David, has a Bar Mitzvah coming up. His grandmothers from both sides move in with David's family. It makes for many funny situations!

Review by ArtsyCrafter

It was mysterious and funny and sad all at the same time. There should be a sequel. I would rate this a trillion stars if I could.

Unexpected replacement :)

Review by nkm10

In my last review of this book I mentioned how much I enjoyed this book. It’s one of my favorites but unfortunately I accidentally put it in the wash with my clothes and it shredded to pieces. And today I received a replacement without even asking for one. Thanks PJ our Way your the best. This made my day.
