My daughter read this book in school and loved it. She said it was really funny and enjoyed learning about the location of the States.

This is the not-as-cute follow-up to The Scrambled States of America. I'm trying to understand why I didn't find it as enjoyable as the first one - I'm not sure. I guess it's just that the conceit of the talent show didn't really flow naturally from the idea that they're all personified states - or something? Whatever! It's still cute, Nevada and Mississippi are still in love, it's a fun book overall.
