Flan Flood is back!

It's time for Thanksgiving break, and Flan's family has been invited to the island of Nevis in the Caribbean by the Zumberg's. Fran is told that she can bring one of her friends along. After careful consideration, Flan throws caution to the wind and invites BOTH Judith and Meredith along for the holiday. So the three girls get themselves packed and off they fly for their week-long holiday of fun in the sun.

But the holiday is nothing like Flan had dreamed. Within a day, Judith is miserable because the other two girls won't let her cram for the finals that they will return to after the holiday. And Meredith has met Kennedy, Flan's old nemesis from her days at Miss Mallard's. After a confrontation, Judith is packed and headed home. And Meredith starts to defend Kennedy to Flan.

Flan is miserable and Meredith is having the holiday that Flan thought they'd all share. After a desperate phone call to Sara-Beth Benny, Flan's BBF, a helicopter arrives on the stretch of beach that Flan was relaxing on, alone. Out pops SBB, along with a huge steamer trunk that the two of them bought together prior to Flan's holiday. SBB has discovered that the steamer trunk has become a great place to hide away in. So she shares it with Flan, and the whirlwind visit is enough to perk Flan back up.

But it's only after sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner with her family that the vacation truly turns into the holiday Flan was expecting. Her old friend Camille (who had abandoned her for the flash of Kennedy) has shown up and literally apologizes to Flan. Flan realizes what she's been missing since attending school at Stuyvesant High. It makes Flan start to reevaluate the choices she's made for herself and decide if she's truly happy.

SOME KIND OF WONDERFUL is a deliciously fun continuation of the INSIDE GIRL novels. Flan and her group of friends live amazing lives that the reader gets caught up in and envious over. Living vicariously through them all makes for a guilty pleasure. You won't want to miss what Flan and her gang gets up to in the latest installment! And watch out for more when ALL THAT GLITTERS comes out in September.

I had never read J. Minter before this, though many of my friends read the insiders, so I was expecting something probably not too original and just a quick read, what I got was two hours of irritation at the horrible writing! Im sure J. Minter is a wonderful person, and maybe his other series have some merit, but this was barely tolerable. There was no variation in sentance stucture, and all characters and settings were revealed in large blocks of bland text. I wouldn't reccomend this book to anyone who actually reads, because you can find a similar story from tons of other authors with a little more talent. try Cicily von Ziegesar or Kate Brian.
