Funhouse by Diane Hoh

Recap #1: Funhouse by Diane Hoh by on 8 January 2013

Dove recaps Funhouse by Diane Hoh, wherein the lead character isn’t a wet rag with the intelligence of rotten milk, the setting is pretty cool, and Gina, the BFF, rocks. Sadly, this will be the last time we enjoy such luxuries. Bit of a shame this is the case on recap #1.
