Comments and Responses!

Klise, Kate. Far From Normal. Scholastic Press, 2006.
This entertaining sequel to Deliver Us from Normal tells what happens when a huge chain turns Charles Harrisong’s life into a television show.  Everyone in the family has to appear in embarrassing commercials. They get paid in coupons that are only redeemable in the chain’s stores.  They are not allowed to go anywhere without permission. And the script for the show makes them look foolish.  The thought of a normal, quiet life starts to become very attractive. But how will they escape their contract, the lawyers and the technology guarding them?  Readers who’ve enjoyed The Wimpy Kid Movie Diary or Half-moon Investigations might like to try this hilarious, fast-moving novel. (Ms. Rosen)

My favorite book is The Diary of a Wimpy Kid because he is a kid just like me and he is just funny. If you have been having troubles reading, you should really try the book out, not only because it’s funny. It’s just when you think about it, [the book is] actually exactly how a kid acts. It might just be me, but I have liked every book that I have read since The Diary of a Wimpy Kid. (Jacob)
