Rated 4 out of 5 by from I adored this book! I got this book about a month ago and I'm SO glad I did. "Finally" will tickle the readers' funny bones and make you chuckle and for those who went through similar situations, remember that and laugh. I recommend this book for those who are ten and up and who love stories with a lot of funny parts.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Finally"Rory's chatty, friendly voice and relentless optimism in the face of her many mishaps are heartwarming." -Publishers Weekly"Growing up doesn't have to happen all at once, and it isn't always all it's cracked up to be . . . Mass provides a pretty entertaining and solidly worthwhile read." -KirkusPraise for 11 Birthdays*"From the double-entendre title to the solid character portrayals to the clarity and wit of the writing, this novel offers a fresh twist on the familiar themes of middle-grade family and school dynamics." -Booklist, starred review*"Mass's expertise with pacing keeps the story moving at a lively clip, and her understanding of this age group is as finely honed as ever." -Publishers Weekly, starred review
