Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-8–This is a very uneven book, with some sections highly creative, informative, and fun and others almost insulting to youngsters (in one paragraph on how to make noises the author states, "being able to make a farting or bombing sound is very important to your career as a boy"). King begins by chastising those readers who might be looking for political correctness and warns that this title will be gross at times but suggests that he is offering what boys really want. Alphabetically arranged chapters range from "Dumb Directions on Products" to "Girls, Bullies and Parties," to "Man Food for Manhood!" (Spamburgers, crapola cookies, etc.), and include activities, jokes, and a few facts. The author points out that boys should really know how to use the kitchen and provides first-date advice. Unfortunately, his tone is so casual that the good suggestions he presents are likely to be lost in the silliness and the "boys will be boys" approach. The long list of reading recommendations gives no indication of age appropriateness.–Edith Ching, St. Albans School, Mt. St. Alban, Washington, DC

They always say that the 1st written novels are the best...yet, I can't say this book is the best, nor it is the worst. I read some of the reviews and I was kinda bracing myself for a terrible book, but instead I found a book that is about picking up yourself again after luck has turn its back on u, and yes, it's still a Phillips romance on its best...Most readers find this novel disappointing because it's not your typical boy meets girl on the 1st chapter. They are too frustrated because it's taking so long for Francesca and Dallie to meet. I bet they're muttering, "the hell with Chloe and Black Jack, just get it on," I didn't mind the history part, it builds the anticipation for the best parts. You learn about their lives. You learn to love them when u hated their guts at first. Like Francesca, I just wanna strangle her on the 1st few chapters. And sometimes, she's just too dumb and vain, and then halfway through the book, I just wanna cry for her and give her a little push, saying, " go on, u can do it!" Phillips has once again able to pull some emotions out of her readers. A few times, I banged the book to the wall, and hated the turn of events. But that's wat makes a good book, if it can make u scream, laugh, or hurt for the characters, I'll say it's worth ur time. I like Phillips; she's not afraid to embarrass her characters. Teddy is the best kid Phillips has ever written. I assure u, Fancy Pants is another winner! Don't let others stopped u from reading it!

Format: Paperback
The first 150 pages of this book involved VERY tough slugging. To be completely honest, despite my deep enjoyment of many of SEP's previous novels, I am quite surprised that I stuck it out long enough for the story to pick up. This book provides far too much background information on Francesca, her mother, and her grandmother. I am all for setting the scene with descriptive writing but, as this book demostrates, there is definitely such a thing as too much of a good thing.

In the beginning of this book, Francesca is a spoiled little rich girl with no perception of kindness for anyone other than herself. She is insensitive, stuck up, vain, and just about everything else that I cannot stand in a heroine. The upside is that Francesca evolves into a highly likeable character. The downside is that it takes a solid four hours of reading torture in order for the reader to start enjoying this book. Even still, I am not sure whether the middle and ending of this book make up for its truly awful beginning.

I recommend that anyone who still feels compelled to give this book a chance, pick it up at a library. That way, if you find the beginning too torturous to get through, you won't have wasted any money on it.

Susan Elizabeth Phillips is one of my favorite authors, and this was the first book I read by her so it remains my favorite. More often than not, I find romance novels boring, unbelievable, silly and completely by the numbers. It would do SEP's novels an injustice to simply refer to them as romance novels. Her stories are fun, intelligent, unpredictable and bittersweet. She can have you laughing out loud on one page and on the next have you in tears. She creates these wonderful, fascinating, complex, and FLAWED characters...as opposed to the simplistic, boring, goody-goody perfection of most romantic leads. And perhaps no characters in all of her novels are so flawed as Francie and Dallie. Francie is a silly, spoiled little girl whom you can't help but feel sorry for when she's left on her own with no idea how to take care of herself. Dallie appears to be stronger and more put together than Francie but hides a world of self-loathing and pain; it eventually becomes apparent that he is in fact the weaker one. It is a delight watching these two grow up into strong individuals of worth and merit. Some readers didn't like or see the need for the telling of Dallie and Holly's romance but I loved it. It was great insight into the character of Dallie and it moved me to tears. Unlike in most romance novels, in SEP's books you can actually understand what the characters see in each other and why they need the other so. Also, one thing I hate in most romances is when the leads fall in love (or at least all-consuming lust) with each other within days of meeting; SEP never tries to pull this and I appreciate it so much. Her books are more realistic but still light and warm enough to be considered fairy tales. I really wish there were more romantic novels like this.

I have loved every SEP book that I've read so far (this is my 4th), but this one was not only the worst of hers, but it was one of the worst romance novels I've ever read. It barely conforms to anything we expect (and want) from a romance novel. Usually in romance novels, the hero is at least in lust (if not in love) with the heroine within days of meeting her. In this novel, the hero barely cared whether he slept with the heroine or not. In fact, after he sleeps with her, he casually dismisses her as someone who wasn't all that good in the sack. Indeed, the only person he shows any real love for is his wife (oh yeah, he has a wife that he conveniently never tells the heroine about). Yes, the heroine is a spoiled, super-vain, rich brat in the beginning, but even she doesn't deserve to fall in love with a "hero" who sleeps with her indifferently, continually tells her to get lost, and then dismisses her anger when she finds out he's married. I don't think I'm alone in saying that readers do not want a hero who is more indifferent to the heroine than he is toward his ex-wife. It's only during about the last 100 pages of this book that the hero starts to have some genuine feelings for the heroine. All in all, Phillips spent more time on the love between the hero and his wife (later, ex-wife) than she did between the two protagonist.
