This is a fantastic, exciting book for a young reader. This book is an easy read for fifth and sixth grade students and will certainly keep them entertained. It tells the story of a young girl who has to reluctantly move from Pennsylvanis to the country town of Teague,Texas,( an actual city) near Waco. It has very interesting characters,Crazy Uncle Joe and James, and chronicles their (mis) adventures in their new home town of Teague. Finally, a book for young girls where the primary character and story teller is female. Multiple adventures, wonderful characters and a truly "G" rated book for all kids with no vulgar language, sexual innuendos,aliens, werewolves, vampires or witches. Just a clean fun book for all ages. I am 37 and loved reading it. Hopefully the author Nancy Huffman will make this a series. thanks
