Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

"James Patterson has figured out the formula for writing entertaining books for tween readers. Jacky is a wildly engaging character. [The story is] great fun. Parents' Choice
Jacky is a genuinely likable and funny protagonist...Kerascoët's black and white illustrations are full of verve and energy, as cartoonish Jacky careens her way through life. BCCB
Smart, funny, and immensely likable, Jacky is a colorful narrator and an increasingly interesting character, and her struggles will strike a chord with many readers....The many black-and-white cartoon-style drawings increase the book's appeal. Booklist
The story is stuffed with page-turning pranks, and the swoopy b&w cartoons from Kerascoët only add to Jacky's untamed energy....The novel is sure to amuse and encourage readers who don't have it all figured out just yet. Publisher's Weekly
Jacky is the best yet. Fun, smart, emotionally engaging, Jacky is a character that young readers will love spending time with. Kirkus Reviews
Readers will find Jacky entertaining....the art is playful and fun. This title is sure to have high circulation among fans of Patterson's previous works. School Library Journal
Engaging from start to finish. Patterson and Grabenstein's latest big-time series will fly off the shelves, and that's no joke. Booklist
