Honestly this is the first book I've ever read that made me laugh out loud. As a niece of a Guncle, this warmed my heart and brought back so many personal memories of when I spent time as a nine year old with my Guncle in his home in Palm Springs. This was such a heartwarming book and I loved the resolution of the ending. The pop culture references were perfect and that just added another layer to this book!
