Life for Jelly Welly—or Jennifer Wellington—is totally and utterly normal in Chompton-on-de-Lyte. She lives with her mum and dad and gran, has nosy neighbors who like to gossip, and really needs to think of a science project that will get her a good grade. But when news breaks of an impending chocopocalypse, her whole world—and the world at large—is thrown into utter chaos. With only six days left until no more chocolate, Jelly has a sneaking suspicion that something isn’t right. She and her gran investigate, picking up on a mysterious trail of clues. Is it really the dreaded chocopocalypse, or is there a mastermind behind the madness?
This book is a really fun idea, but isn’t executed as well as I’d hoped. I didn’t love the writing, or that basically all the characters do is watch tv and eat chocolate all day. But I thought the science experiment was fun—only it was a very small amount of the book, in all. This book also has a little bit of potty language.
