Peeled by Joan Bauer
reviewed by Sarah
If you are looking for a book that is exciting, humorous, and emotional, you should read Peeled by Joan Bauer. This book is about a girl who is a high school reporter, trying to battle a rival newspaper which has been publishing false information. To do this, she must learn the true facts of the story and reveal them to the public.
The plot of Peeled is so exciting and fun to read, that I could barely put it down. My favorite thing about the book is that the author was able to write about serious topics like blackmail and death, while still being humorous. I would recommend this story for girls ages nine through fifteen, because the topics are probably too mature for someone younger than nine, and the writing is probably too easy for someone older than fifteen. I recommend this for girls because the main character is a girl and it is told from her perspective, though a boy might like it too. I really enjoyed the book, Peeled, and I look forward to reading other books by Joan Bauer.Posted by Arlo at October 15, 2010 02:40 PM
