User Review  - Goodreads

Jana wants to transform James into "Super-Jim" so he can become president of the high school.

Review: The Makeover of James Orville Wickenbee

User Review  - Cassandra Bowers - Goodreads

This was a fun easy read. The book made me think about how much we judge people by appearance and not as much as what they are on the inside. I also liked the idea of how much a difference one person can make. My one big complaint was that the book ended too soon! I wanted more of a resolve. Read full review
