We need to talk about Jojo. Somebody needs to talk about Jojo. But who? Who really wants to talk about him? Jojo’s musician Mom is supposedly away on tour, somewhere. Jojo’s Dad, when at home, despite his best effort, is still too busy with his car, his animal kingdom TV, sleeping, or getting angry about something. And Jojo’s clueless water polo team coach?
But something is changing. Now there’s the little black bird, and that girl with red bikini top (and blue bubblegum). Now Jojo has to learn about something important: the truth.
My Rating: 6/10
