I will be recommending this one to everyone I know, especially kids—they deserve high-quality, well-written, humorous books like this one.
Arianne Costner is an incredibly talented writer, and I eagerly look forward to her next book!
Genre — Middle-grade fiction
According to the dustjacket of this darling book, the author “believes that writers should crack up at their own jokes.”
I’m here to tell you that my husband and I laugh more reading this book than we’ve laughed in a long time! We read it on a roadtrip through Idaho, which made it all the better, (being that we were actually IN the potato state!) Protagonist Ben lives in Idaho, only because his parents moved him there from lovely California to Idaho.
You won’t want to miss Ben’s hilarious middle-school adventure. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves to laugh! I’m buying it for my middle school grandson for his birthday!
Full of potato puns and #relatable middle school feels, this book had me snort-laughing all the way through. Ben's struggle is perennial and universal, and the author, Arianne Costner, channels middle school realness with ease. Perfect for kids grappling with questions of identity--or just plain wanting to have a good time!
This books is an excellent mix of humor, suspense, mixed with a captivating plot. My students and I loved this book. They were begging me to read aloud everyday. As a teacher, nothing is better than the excitement of children begging for the next chapter. This book is a great read aloud and a fantastic source of literature filled with figurative language.
