My daughter liked this book best out of all the Melvin Beederman books we've read so far. I think I liked it least. After a chapter of introduction to the Valley girls that is heavy on speech mannerisms, they all go away for a heavy portion of the book. What's the point of having Valley girls if they aren't actually Valley girls? And it seemed sort of lame that the villains aren't actually bad people, they just ate an evil cookie. How are you supposed to root against someone that isn't actually bad? They're like Raymond in The Manchurian Candidate.
Rating: two and a half out of seven giant inflatable monkeys.
