Find on Amazon
TJ Finkelstein would love to have a normal life. You know one where all of the school's thoughts aren't broadcast via their cell phones for everyone to hear. One where she's not being chased by an African elephant in the school auditorium. One where TV star Hesper Breakahart isn't turned into a giant baby. One where her 23rd century time traveling helpers, Tuna and Herby, aren't making matters worse. But still, there is a lesson to be learned here. One that includes being kind to others.Still it's just another day (or week) in the life of a semi normal Malibu 7th grader.
This is the second book about TJ I've read. I'm planning on reading all six books in this series, probably not in order, because I am really enjoying them.
Tuna and Herby once again create trouble for TJ and she refuses to listen to their advice. Yet they do manage to eventually get through to her and she learns lessons of kindness and not being mean to others.
With each book, I'm finding myself highly recommending this series. I think they are perfect for kids ages 8-12. I can see myself gifting them to my friends at some point.
Still, the book is a hilarious adventure that even adults will enjoy.
I rented this book from the library to read for Tyndale's Summer Reading Program. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
Recommended to fans of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid Series, teachers, librarians, kids ages 8-12
