Publisher's Summary

Jackie does not like surprises. Chaos is the enemy! The best way to get her successful, busy parents to notice her is to be perfect. The perfect look, the perfect grades - the perfect daughter. And then… Surprise number one: Jackie's family dies in a freak car accident. Surprise number two: Jackie has to move cross-country to live with the Walters - her new guardians. Surprise number three: The Walters have 12 sons. (Well, 11, but Parker acts like a boy anyway.) Now Jackie must trade in her Type A personality and New York City apartment for a Colorado ranch and all the wild Walter boys who come with it. Jackie is surrounded by the enemy -loud, dirty, annoying boys who have no concept of personal space. Okay, several of the oldest guys are flat-out gorgeous. But still annoying. She's not stuck-up or boring - no matter what they say - but proving it is another matter. How can she fit in and move on when she needs to keep her parents' memory alive by living up to the promise of perfect?

Lots of ups and downs.

The story idea itself was not bad but drug along. Lots of emotional ups and downs that helped make the characters feel more real. I couldn't help but feel irritated with the main character at times, especially when dealing the boys interest's. The biggest disappointment was the ending though. Hate reading books with no closure and boy did this story leave you hanging.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I was disappointed in this book. I thought that it was going to be a 'coming-of-age' for a young lady who lost everything but most things felt unresolved. The story was cute but i think it could have been much much longer and gone into more details with her inner struggles and romantic struggles.


Would you recommend My Life with the Walter Boys to your friends? Why or why not?

Yes & No. Yes, to a girl who is a teen or tween. If you are looking for details and resolutions then no.


What does Renée Chambliss bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She gives voices to charters and gave emotions...


Any additional comments?

This is a great teen/tween book. It is not too deep and really doesn't make you think too much. fairly basic but a cute storry.
