Please Don't Tell My Parents You Believe Her (Please Don't Tell My Parents #5) Reviews
Pretty Good Conclusion
I didn't quite love the end of book four. In essence the series had gotten a little too dark. Book five begins in that same dark place but builds to an ideal climax. I unreservedly recommend the series as a whole but but don't love book five as much as I did book one. Well worth reading however and my "negative" take is only because how much I loved books one through three raised the bar ridiculously high.
I am way too biased to write a review for this book, the only thing I'll say is...
I wanted my confession.
I had been wondering, speculating, and envisioning what would happen in that fateful moment, but nada.
Everything else is great, very interesting and although not my favourite book in this series, definitely added some good things to the wonderful world.
Who's a Gerty Girl?!?! (or boy).
This title is the second half of the story which began in Please Don't Tell My Parents I Have A Nemesis.
The book is more zany fun from Richard Roberts, with oodles of characters, lots of bizarre mayhem, villainous ranting and mass destruction. If you've read the rest of the series, you know what you're in for, and this book definitely delivers. Gerty definitely does steal the show though.

Robert Richards delivers exactly what I was hoping for in Please Don't Tell My Parents You Believe Her. The fourth book in Penny Justice Akk's story follows the girl with a dented heart of gold in her back pocket and a heart of steel in her chest as she journeys to find out if she has what it takes to be a real girl once again. Even tone and excellent pacing make this a marvelous read and every bit as fun as all of Penny's other adventures have been.
I love these series. Penny is a treasure, and I love the random one off historical world building in this series. This turned out a lot more quest for redemption than fight for freedom, and I enjoyed that a lot.
Deeper than expected
While the whimsical, borderline manic, tone remains, there are some deeper concepts at work. Gerty Goat is an awesome sidekick and Ampexia provides much needed balance to the team.
It dragged a bit at times. Mainly because of the existential stuff that, while necessary, made for tough reading.
I also kept wondering why everyone didn’t realize the Machine was an excellent judge of who was real. That may have been covered in the previous book, but it should hav ...more
Best series ever!
I have absolutely loved every single one of these books. The only other series I can compare them to is the first one that ever really got me interested in reading (Anne McCaffrey's Pern novels, the Dragon Harper trilogy was the first time I ever found a world in a book that I loved so much that I desperately wished I could leave this world behind for it, even if it meant it would be a one way trip. Other book's worlds, both before and since, have been ones I have wanted to visi ...more
A great wrap
A wonderful conclusion to Bad Penny and the inscrutable Machine. I did miss her mad science fugues and over the top mad science in this installment, but that was to be expected with the way the last book ended.
