3.0

It’s a very clever premise, but the energy of the book was incredibly confrontational and (understandably) full of fighting. Plus, the potty humor references were a negative in my book. I appreciate the idea here, and can see how some would enjoy it (clearly, it’s a NY Times Bestseller), but it’s not one I’d enjoy reading aloud time and time again.
