About the Author

Jenn Cooksey is a Southern California girl born and bred, however she's no longer a resident of heaven on earth, but instead she currently resides in the 7th Ring of Hell with her husband, their three daughters, and a goodly number of pets. Aside from her husband, one cat, and three out of five fish, everyone living under the Cooksey's roof is female. She's sure her husband will not only be awarded sainthood when he kicks the bucket, but that Jesus will welcome him into heaven with a beer and a congratulatory high-five. Jenn is also of the belief that Bacon should be capitalized and that just being yourself is the best way to go. That is, unless you can be Batman. Always be Batman.

My Review of The Other Fish in the Sea
I fell in love with the Grab Your Pole series, while reading Shark Bait. I wanted to read The Other Fish in the Sea right away, but never got the chance until now. When I purchased The Other Fish in the Sea right before going to bed, I really only planned to read one Chapter. Much to my surprise, when I finally put it down the sun was up and the book was finished. I completely lost myself in the book, and it was worth the complete lack of sleep. The Cliffhanger at the end almost had me purchasing Shark Out of Water and diving right in. I would recommend having the third book on hand, because that ending really leaves you hanging off the edge of a very large cliff. 

This review has not been an easy one to write, I have stop and started it half a dozen times. It is simply because I am having a hard time explaining my diehard love for this book without giving anything away about the series. The story of The Other Fish in the Sea is such a rollercoaster of emotions, but I could not be happier to be back in the midst of the GYP Gang. Obviously, I love Tristan and Camie, but the whole group really makes The Other Fish in the Sea so freaking awesome. Then add a sprinkling of snark, a dash of Buffy, and some tempting licorice. 

Out of all the characters, the one I idolize and fear the most is Jillian. I would love to have her evil mastermind skills, but I would not want to be the one who crosses to her bad side. Some of the best laughs come from Jillian and her creative plots of revenge. Jeff has to be my other favorite just because he is the comic relief in most situations, and because he is a truly loyal, loving friend. Of course, I cannot forget Tristan, who I grew to love even more in this book. 

Even with an ending that had me contemplating hurtling my Kindle into the nearest wall, The Other Fish in the Sea is far better than even the epicness of Shark Bait. That feat alone makes this a must read. If you have not started the Grab Your Pole series, now is the time because you are missing out. Jenn Cooksey is a magic word ninja, who chooses to use her skill to entertain the masses. Join Cult Cooksey now.
