The reason I say it’s a really weird book is because some of the characters are cockroach butlers. There’s also a Chinese billionaire who becomes a villin and wears green goggles and his name is the Belgian Prankster. Before you meet these crazy people and insects, you meet Jo Larouche. She lives in the hot deserts of California, with her aunt Lily. Her Aunt Lily was having a costume party. After meeting an unusual man, and Sefino, a cockroach in a purple suit, things become strange. Very strange. Jo learns about her terrible birth and has to keep it a secret. Anyone who likes to laugh, books with action and odd statements, characters, and items….. well congratulations! You just found yourself another book to read this summer!
At school, everyone in my grade had to read one Newbery book. I picked Roller Skates. Roller Skates is about a girl, Lucinda, who has to go to an “orphanage”. That’s what Lucinda calls it, “I’m a temporary orphan!” Her mother takes the whole family to Europe, but has to leave Lucinda behind. Ms. Nettie owned the house along with Ms. Peters. Lucinda’s mother shouldn’t have been worried because little did she know; Lucinda can make friends of all kinds!
