Hi and welcome to another Friday! That can only mean one thing. Yes, my first post since Tuesday night. But also time for Book Beginnings and Friday 56.
I just finished book 5 of NERDS by Michael Buckley. This one was called Attack of the BULLIES. And it's a fun end to the series with lots of action and humor with some fantasy thrown in, too. Everything the target middle grade audience will love. I'll have a full review Sunday night as part of Marvelous Middle Grade Monday. But in the mean time.
This is from the Prologue:
The principal of Thomas Knowlton Middle School was working at his desk when the ninjas attacked.
And chapter one:
"How did I get here?" Ruby Peet grumbled to herself as she climbed onto the roof of a British express train.
And jumping ahead to page 56:
"What's on CNN? Oh, a report about a squirrel that water skis. Well, that's huge international news, right? Watch this - he's going to jump a ramp. Wow, that animal is fearless."
Yes, it really is as fun as these sentences make it sound. Read them in order, and enjoy.
