    Jenny Prezzioso has a reputation of being the most snobby, fussy, and prissy four-year-old the BSC has sat for. But more than ever is Jenny being fussy. When Mary Anne confronts her, Mary Anne realizes what the problem is; Jenny is jealous of her little sister Andrea. Andrea is a born star. She's great on camera and is given many jobs to be in commercials. Understandingly, Jenny is disappointed and jealous. On top of all that, the Pike triplets, Byron, Adam and Jordan, have started a softball team but they won't let Jenny join because she's "Miss Priss". What is Mary Anne going to do? I absolutely loved this book. In the beginning of the book, it was a little slow and boring but by the end of the book I was excited and happy with the ending. This book teaches the importance of not being jealous of others. This book stresses the point that everyone has their own talents and gifts. I really liked this book; it was inspiring and very interesting. I think the reader will really like the information that is given about how auditions for commercials work. That was very unexpected but very interesting and fun. I suggest this book is you like reading about family, little sisters, babysitting, and friendship. Happy reading!
