Jess Jordan is starting to regret volunteering to host a male French exchange student, at least until his letter and photo arrive in the mail. But, when Edouard arrives, he is anything but the dreamy boy Jess was hoping for. In this prequel to Limb’s other novels featuring Jess, an always funny and often overly dramatic English girl, she is once again caught up in trouble that is largely her own making. On an ill-fated camping trip designed to bring everyone closer together, Jess finds herself as the third corner of a love triangle featuring another exchange student and her best friend Flora. Unfortunately, the incredibly gorgeous and womanizing boy at the center of the controversy has other admirers. Good thing Jess’s long-time friend, Fred, is along. If only Jess can manage to keep the peace and her own sanity. This latest installment in the Jess Jordan saga is perfectly fun and, of course, zany. (Fiction. 12-14)
