Review: Josie goes to college in the mornings and high school in the afternoons. She has two best friends, Stu and twin Sophie, who live across the street. But, now Josie’s sister is getting married and has ruined everything. Josie despises Geoff, the fiancé, and is determined to stop the wedding. Josie, being the bright girl she is, uses her skill with words and questioning to make Geoff look bad. But nothing works except to ruin her relationship with her sister. When Josie falls for the wrong guy, things become tangled and begin to backfire on her. This is a funny and creative romp through a girl’s attempt to keep her world from changing except on her terms.
