Review: So, do you like realistic fiction books? If so, Too Cool for this School by Kristen Tracy is a good one. There are lots of good books, but this one is awesome. You'll pick it up and finish it pretty quick if you love middle school drama.
Lane is in 6th grade at Rio Chama Middle School. When her spunky comes to visit she thinks her life is over. She needs to use her skills to get through the time she has with her cousin. Lane and her cousin Angelina "Mint" Travel have to learn to get along. Angelina A.K.A. Mint lives in Alaska. She definitely has her own personality. Lane and her friend Ava think that Mint is weird but her parents think she is just spunky. Her father wants Lane to look out for her but when she starts bugging Lane it is very hard for Lane to do it. Will she look out for her cousin? Read the book to see.
In the book the author ends each chapter at the right spot to make you want to come back and finish the book. The characters in the book and the plot were well developed through out the book. At the beginning the book is slow and it is hard to come back and finish it. But, once you get to where Mint comes in the book starts to get really good. The story is great and all of the characters are very well personalized. You'll probably like this book if you're in middle school. Read the book to find out what happens next.
