    Dive in and Enjoy the Depth

    If only my high school life could have been as exciting as Bella's. No wait, an ex-boyfriend who cheated, a murdered circus star, a new boyfriend stalked by his ex, inability to trust him, a father marrying the wrong woman, and a mother dealing with a new marriage is more than any teenager should have to handle. But handle it Bella does and she does so with humor, sensitivity, stubbornness, and a personality that draws the reader into the story until the last page.

    Jenny B. Jones has a great way of telling stories for young people that will entertain all ages and teach important messages also. I highly recommend this book and the others in the series also; So Not Happening, and I'm So Sure.

    Bella's Unbelievable but lovable

    So Over My Head by Jenny B. Jones is a teen read full of zaniness interspersed with suspense. The quirky characters face both ordinary and unbelievable situations, throwing in plenty of sarcasm and humor. This chick lit offers not only shopping and fashionable New York, but murder and mayhem in Truman, Oklahoma, in addition to romance with some sizzle and silliness.

    Isabella Kirkwood stars in her third book (It's not necessary to read the others to enjoy this one). This time Bella uses her crime-solving talent to solve the mystery involving the Fritz Family Carnival and Circus. She manages to write for the high school newspaper, with editor boyfriend Luke, and work as a clown by night at the circus. Her nosiness nearly gets her killed. Oh, a dog plays a key role too, so pet lovers will be happy.

    Add in a plastic surgeon father, who plans to marry a gold-digger, and Bella almost has more than she can handle. Her time is split between Truman, with her mom and stepfamily, and Manhattan, with her dad and his suspicious fiancée.

    The importance of relationships comes through-with boys, with family, and with friends. Bella is fortunate enough to have a crazy sidekick in Ruthie, who sticks with her through danger and depression.

    The exaggerations in the book will help readers not to take themselves too seriously. They may laugh, they may cry, they may get mad at the crazy characters, but I doubt anyone can read this novel without reacting. Even though it's over the top, as the title implies, it makes you look at life a bit differently than before you plunged into the adventure with Bella.
