Well I think it was a really good book, because it was really funny and interesting at the same time. It was good to read because it kept me wanting to read it to the very end so that I could find out what happens.
Wonderful book about Peter Hatcher's "frenemy", Sheila Tubman. One of the greatest things about Judy Blume's books is that her characters are timeless and relatable to children. When I was a kid, I was devouring her books, and now my nine year old is doing the same thing. This is one of his favorites.
