Bon Voyage, Connie Pickles by Sabine Durrant
This cute little book is the second in a series that promises to be a cross between Princess Diaries and Georgia Nicolson. Connie has fancy grandparents who don't know her, and lots of cute boys who *might* like her and of course she tends to pick the wrong one first. There is the usual friend-drama, (bffs who meet and like each other more than they like me!) family issues, and inebriated kissing, but in the exciting foreign world of France! The author attempts loose allegorical associations with Madame Bovary, which Connie is trying to read. NAY for Thumbs Up, but I definitely think funny-girl teens are going to enjoy this one.
