Oops! by Bill Myers
The characters in this story by Bill Myers are quite as comical as the unique names, which I found to "tickle your funny bone". The story was a little hard to get into, being that I had not read the first two stories in this series, but I was able to catch onto it rather quickly. Thelma Jean (T.J. for short) seems to be your average, awkward teen-age, but there is something even more awkward about her...she's the focus of a history report for two "futuristic" characters who are following her around doing research...and getting her into some pretty awkward situations. T.J. is just hoping that her life will return to normal...but it's easy to see, that's not going to happen...for quite some time! At the end of this adventure of T.J. and the Time Stumblers is a preview to the next episode in her adventures...and it looks like more chaos is in store. Oops is the third story in the T.J. and the Time Stumblers series. This is a laugh-out-loud series for any young reader!
I wish to thank Tyndale Publishers for the free copy of this book for my review :)
