Can he finish the list before he leaves Baltimore or will he finish it and maybe obtain the Beautiful and Unobtainable Woman? Find out in this zany and funny adventure.
I liked this book. It was funny and had me laughing out loud multiple times. But it was short. I thought that the book would have been all the better if he had added more. The ending was just kind of a sum up of events. But other than that I did enjoy this book very much and would recommend it to my friends. The book is definitely for a teen audience, probably 14 and older.
