Format: Paperback
I'll admit that most of my love for this comic directly correlates with how wonderful the artwork is. It's absolutely adorable and really suits the characters. The story? Well, it's cute but I'll admit that occasionally I raised an eyebrow or two.

The basic theme here is friendship, which I'll admit I liked. I truly did like the interactions between Chloe and Tash. They work well together and I really rooted for them to be able to end the book as friends or even sisters. What I didn't like was how Chloe's father was portrayed. I know that he was intended to be an unlikable character, but his personality is so over the top that it's actually pretty unbelievable and I think the book's reveals would have been better served if the author had tried to make his personality more realistic or at least played up his reasons a little more. The same goes for the bully (whose name I can't remember). It's things like this that just made the ending sort of fizzle when it should have popped.

Overall though, this is a rather cute read and one I'd recommend, but as a library read first. It's something that I'm glad I read, but I have to admit that I'm glad I read it at the library.

Format: Paperback
Despite the dodgy title and the even dodgier front cover (a laptop is featured with emoticons coming out of the screen in speech bubbles...urgh) underneath the painfully trying-to-be-cool-and-becomes-desperately-uncool exterior is a fantastic book. And I never thought I would say that this little comic is fantastic. But it really is. The dialogue is incredibly fast-paced and teeming with clever word play and gutsy gusto that I just wasn't expecting. The story is engaging and, personally, I loved Tash and Ben's relationship even though it wasn't featured very much. Tash herself is a hyperbole of a teenager with attitude, and by portraying her as so over the top it actually makes her extremely lovable. Teenagers do not act like this or have lives like this...and the authors don't pretend they do which makes a change from most other YA fiction you read written by men in their forties pretending they're still cool.

By Steven R. McEvoy on September 20, 2010
Format: Paperback
It was very humorous to find out that a story about a father ghostwriting for his daughter was written by a father and daughter team. This is not my favorite story in the MINX line, but it was a good read with strong female characters that learn to bond together. There are hints at abuse, bullying at school, issues of blended families. There are a lot of good topics covered in this book.

Tasha is headed for a breakdown. Her mother's new boyfriend is a writer who is spurring his daughter on to follow the family vocation. He is overbearing, obnoxious and pigheaded. His daughter starts attending Tasha's school and things get even worse. Then for the holidays they have to take a trip together to America; Tasha is about to lose it.

I loved Mike's first graphic novel in this series, and it provoked my tracking down the others. I was a little disappointed in this one, compared to the series as a whole, and especially compared to Re-Gifters. There are some good themes and topics but as a whole it just did not resonate with me the way some of the others have.
