Dear George Clooney Please Marry my Mom by Susin Nielsen 229 pages
With a new George Clooney movie coming out soon, there will be more women swooning over this talented actor/director. Although the premise that a girl could snag George for her deserving, divorced mom seems far-fetched, Violet has a plan. Her father is a TV director who has moved from their home in Vancouver to California. Violet hopes to drop in on George and make her case. She is desperate because she can't stand Dudley Wiener, her mother's current beau. Viiolet's friend Phoebe is much more helpful than her younger sister, Rosie. Violet uses her Magic 8 ball to communicate with both Mom, Dad and Dudley. Funny and believable.
