Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
While her parents are ``gallivanting around Europe'' for six weeks in the fall, Iris is stuck at home with Mrs. Fuller, the dorky housekeeper. Left to her own devices, the irrepressible 12-year-old lets her room turn into a disaster area, indulges in several shopping sprees and struggles to make her mark in junior high. Although rattlesnake-skin sneakers fail to impress the kids at school, Iris's ingenious scheme to get even with obnoxious Corky Newton does stir up some excitement. This second volume of Iris Bloom's outrageous antics offers snappy dialogue and a cast of memorable characters. With exemplary skill, Jukes ( Getting Even ; Like Jake and Me ) sustains a light tone in her writing while acknowledging the seriousness of preteen concerns. In particular, a scene depicting Iris's close call with a flirtatious older stranger is handled extremely well. The heroine's feelings of embarrassment and guilt are genuine and satisfactorily resolved when sympathetic adults remind her--and readers--that aggressors, not victims, are the ones who should feel shame. Ages 10-14. (Apr.)
School Library Journal
Gr 5-7-- Iris, 12, doesn't seem to have changed much since readers last encountered her and her friend Maggie in Getting Even (Knopf, 1988). She remains outspoken, often embarrassing her friends, and willful. After six weeks of surviving an ``intolerable'' baby-sitter, Iris is furious to discover that her parents' return from a European business trip will be delayed by one day. Instead of informing her caretaker, she decides that since she is a woman now--she began menstruating while her parents were gone--she can remain alone for one night. That decision, along with another poorly thought-out plan to go to the mall alone, puts Iris in a crisis situation. She accepts a ride from a friendly shoe salesman who attempts to molest her, but her quick thinking allows her to escape. When Maggie breaks her promise and reveals her best friend's horrible secret to her father, Iris is at last able to get the adult comfort and advice she desperately needs. Jukes has a sure touch in capturing contemporary dialogue and relationships, but it is difficult to understand why anyone would remain friends with someone as obnoxious as Iris. In spite of this major flaw, the author manages to evoke readers' sympathy for the girl; although there are many touches of humor in this novel, Iris's predicament is presented honestly and seriously and resolved in a positive way. --Ellen Fader, Westport Public Library, CT
