From the moment (in the first chapter) in which the main character in Of Jenny and the Aliens talks about how he calls his penis the King in the North—then every consecutive time he refers to it as such*—I knew this book wasn’t going to be for me.

Mandy Curtis's photo About the Author: Mandy is a small town girl living in a nerdy world, or—if you want to get literal—an editor/writer living in Austin, TX. In addition to yearning for YA books—the more dystopian or fantastical, the better—she can also be found swooning over superheroes, dreaming of The Doctor and grinning at GIFs.
