liked it

We listened to this one, and it was pretty good. Jeremy is a likable boy, funny and quite resourceful in finding a way to raise money covertly. I enjoyed the interaction between him and his family and friends, it was realistic without dwelling on the negative. But, it moved a little slow. The author spends a little too long hashing and rehashing certain elements.

(Example: Jeremy and his friend come up with a clever plan to raise some money. The plan is unorthodox, to put it mildly. Jeremy's friend feels compelled to ask over and over "Are we really going to do this?" or something to that affect. Jeremy reassures him that they are. Over and over.)

Snore. This type of dialogue slowed down the story and made me want to skip ahead repeatedly. Otherwise, an interesting story that will appeal to both clever boys and their wise sisters.
