To be honest, I found this novel a little slow to get into at first. It took me about four chapters before I actually got into the story. Other than that, this novel was SO funny - Jess and Fred had me laughing out loud most of the time.
I found it got a bit predictable near the end, though. Jess would be in tears because she couldn't find lighting or caterers - and then suddenly an adult would come and say 'Oh my friend does lighting,' or 'Well I'm very good at cooking, I'm sure I can...' etc. I would have liked it if there was more sitting-on-the-edge-of-your-seat, seeing what Jess would do to solve the problem.
My favourite character was probably Polly, daughter of Jess's Mum's Disaster Date #1. I think she was really kind, and I liked the sound of her cool goth clothes! It was really nice of her to help out with the cooking at Jess's Valentines Dinner Dance, Chaos, too.
Overall this was quite a good book - not the best in the series, I don't think - but I still really enjoyed it. :O) This novel gets a rating of...3.5/5!
