This book gave me a good laugh while reading it, it was light hearted and funny with a good message. My favorite part of the book was the ending, it made me happy to see Jacky with a bright future after she struggled so much during her childhood. The moral of the story was to show that people show their struggle in different ways, and that something such as Jacky's humor might be portrayed as her weakness by others was actually her biggest success. She used her talent, something the teachers ridiculed her for to create a future for herself. I would rate this book 4 stars. I recommend it to people from ages 12 to 16 who want to read something that would make them laugh.

I first found out about this book through a commercial for it and I was glad that I finally had a chance to read it. I was in my 20s in 1990 so I'm a bit over the target age range for this story, but I didn't find it that funny, to be honest. There were the "gross jokes" that seem to be found in every kid's book and I considered giving up on it. But Jackie's story intrigued me so I kept on. I liked that the chapters were short, which allowed me to get through the book quickly. I loved that You're A Good Man Charlie Brown was featured so prominently and I even learned a lot about theatre and public speaking. All this from a really cute kid's book.( I loved the illustrations and all of the 90s references as well!) Who knew?

This was a very lighthearted yet deep story about a girl with a huge sense of humour. I enjoyed it a lot.
