This is a great book, and it doesn't matter how old you are. Sammy Keyes is the clever tomboy, that we all love. Wendelin Van Draanen makes all her books have a magical feeling, where you can not put the book down, no matter how hard you try. She makes every word come alive, and dance before your eyes. Another book, that will bring you great laughter!
