Diary of a Parent Trainer by Jenny Smith
Thirteen-year-old Katie Sutton, a self-proclaimed expert on grown-up behavior, begins writing a user's manual to help other teens train and operate their parents, but when her own mother starts dating Yellow Tie Man, Katie needs all of her expertise to get rid of him.
I'm on page 111, and so far the story is pretty entertaining. I'd definitely recommend this book to a mature audience. Katie seemed sorta stale in the beginning, I'm starting to see her as a real person! All the different characters and conflicts are interesting, too. I like the whole idea, it's really funny how Katie does the whole thing, creating "modes" and pretending a grown-up is like a product you buy at the store. I also like the story between Katie's mom and her boyfriend, dubbed as the "Yellow Tie Man" by Katie. I'm excited to read more!
The Kid Table
Yesterday, I took a visit to the library. And let me say, my library's Young Adult section is GLORIOUS. There are a ton of books that I could borrow at once, but alas, there are such things as "return due dates". So my challenge is to read 2 books by my given due date, July 6th, 2013. The books, you ask?
