When a Dance Date Goes Sour

Zoe and Chloe on the Prowl Sue Limb

Zoe and Chloe have no dates for the upcoming Earthquake Ball and have lots of hilarious hijinks while trying to get some. Zoe's older sister Tamsin is also having difficulties at university that she wants Zoe to solve. There are caddish boys, naked toddlers, and some cameos from Jess Morgan to round out the story.

I didn't like this one near as much as I like Limb's Jess Morgan books (Girl, 15, Charming but Insane.) To be fair, I wasn't overly fond of the first Jess Morgan book but ended up loving the series. Zoe and Chloe wasn't nearly as funny and they drove me a little up the wall. Also, Tamsin just appalled me! I couldn't believe what she wanted Zoe to do! I saw the sequel when I was in England and while I did pick it up, I couldn't bring myself to buy it. Zoe and Chloe just didn't do it for me and their mad-cap adventures were mostly due to their supreme silliness, which I have a low tolerance for. If your main character is just silly, there has to be something else to pull me into the book. I mean, it was a fun and enjoyable light read, but not as strong as Jess Morgan.
