Teen Review: P.G. Wodehouse

Mike and PsmithTitle & Author:  Mike and Psmith by P.G. Wodehouse
Summary:  Mike and Psmith tells the story of two boys, who, resentful of being kicked out of their beloved old boarding schools meet one another at their new school and form an unlikely alliance as hijinks and antics ensue.

Interesting Fact: Cricket can be very funny.  😉
I started reading it b/c… my mom recommended it.

I kept reading b/c… it was incredibly humorous. Many of the short stories had me in stiches, and continue to stay funny every time I read it.

The main character would be voted Most Likely To Be:  An English Lord.
Six Word Review:  Boys become friends rebelling at school.
This book reminded me of… nothing besides other P.G. Wodehouse books. Wodehouse is in a class of his own (as shown by his knighthood by the queen) and I highly recommend his books.
