I didn't rate this very much, Dora the 17 yr old character annoyed me beyond belief. I have a 17 yr old girl and judging by what she and her friends are like, Dora was unrealistic. Yes teenage girls get very moody but they also are very very loving but we didn't see that side of Dora. French wrote about Dora as if she was about 14 years old, it just didn't ring true for me. The only reason I didn't give it a 1 star was the fact that in a few places it did make me snigger.
