101 Ways to Bug Your...
...Friends and Enemies
by Lee Wardlaw (2011)
A little Jane Austin for the miniature golf crowd -- lots of relationship intrigue and discovering of romantic feelings, as well as lessons in friendship as people grow and change. A lot going on, the numerous characters (and ailments, and accents, and...) in the first chapters had my head swimming, but everything and everyone ties together nicely at the end. Genuinely funny, and without the usual base juvenile book humor. Loved the Hawaiian golfer character, something different and fresh.
Although I do wonder why I feel the urge to rent Roxanne ...?
