BARNES AND NOBLE
When this book became available for review, Emma (my 8 year old) was looking over my shoulder and said - "Cool. What's that?" So, I asked to be a part of Braden's Blog tour for his new book because I had two kids who were into it, and I thought we'd do a little family read and review :-D
This story is absolutely universally liked by my family. It's completely obvious that Bell spends time around middle-school aged kids because he has that voice down PERFECT.
My husband laughed, my daughter laughed, and my son laughed when he paid attention (he's five).
It's a great mix of fun and mystery, and I flew through it in a night. (The family read took slightly longer)
I think I can probably sell you on this one just by typing up the first few lines...
That's what hooked my daughter.
Connor Dell didn't mean to set anyone's gym shorts on fire.
He didn't know it would happen. And if he had known, he never would have - well, that might be going too far. It started in seventh period science...
AND NOW YOU HAVE TO GET YOUR OWN, lol.
What have you read lately??
