Product description

Review

"The themes of appraising worth and of making the right choice versus the popular choice are believably presented"

"Kids in a tough spot are familiar territory for Paul Kropp, a Toronto writer for young readers with 39 titles to his credit. This one reflects Kropp's professionalism, and is briskly paced with a likeable protagonist and some thoughtful asides about life and growing up...the novel is a quick read that may have the fainthearted (like me) flipping forward to make sure everything comes out all right. It does, and Jordan learns some lessons: popularity isn't everything, being different isn't a sin, and when someone sees your best side and admires you for it, that's golden." - The Quill and Quire

"Jordan, dragged to Surrey, has three options: hang out with the bad kids, hang out with weird Jessica, or hang out with the old-world Countess von Loewen down the street. He tries to do all three, and, naturally, everybody suffers before he sets all to rights." - Georgia Straight

"Falling in with the wrong crowd, not being able to say 'no, ' and then having to face up to the consequences is an age-old tale; and it's never been better told than in The Countess and Me...Kropp's story moves at a zippy pace, he pulls no punches and sits Jordan face to face with this dilemma of his own making. It's uncannily true to life and well written, and what's not to like about that?" - The Hamilton Spectator

"Strong characterization, a quality found in Kropp's previous half dozen YA novels, is very must present in The Countess and Me. And, as in his other works, Kropp places his protagonist in a realistic situation in which the adolescent is faced with making a tough moral choice, one which has negative consequences no matter which decision is made. Middle school readers will most certainly identify with the social milieu that Kropp has created." - CM Magazine
