I read a book called Iggie's House. This book is about a girl named Winnie. She gets new friends who are the first black people in her street, who buy her best friend Iggie's house. Winnie's new friends are Herbie, Glenn and Tina.
I liked the part where Winnie was hiding at the Garber's (Glenn,Tina,Herbie¡¯s house) to look who were moving to Iggie's house. It was kind of dirty but it was funny too. Because Winnie's legs sink into mud. I wouldn't like to see my legs in the mud. but, Winnie didn't care when her legs sank. Well, it could be a little fun.
I didn't like Herbie at the part when he makes a fight with Winnie. I just hated him!! Herbie say that when he's family moves back to Driot(Where his family came from),Winnie will talk to people about how she made friends with the black people. Then Winnie smacks Herbie across the face. Well, I think he deserve it.. Winnie really did a lot of things for the Garber's family to keep them live at their new house!! But Herbie didn't know. I almost cried at the part Winnie slaps Herbie and then really cried at the part where Winnie comes home screaming and crying when she sees Mrs.Germs putting the signs that says ¡°GO BACK WHERE YOU BELONG.WE DON'T WANT YOUR KIND AROUND HERE!!!!! I hated Mrs.Germs from the beginning of the book to end. I have never seen a bad person like Mrs.Germs.
I was sorry for Winnie at the part where she met Mrs.Germs at the pool, Where she had a fight with Herbie(that creep!!), where she she was scolded by Mrs.Germs and not Tina and other parts too. Winnie always gets in trouble when she tries to do good thing for the Garber's family. I like Winnie the best in this book because she is so kind to everybody, she is funny, and stuff. I wish everything would work out good with the Garbers and Winnie at the school. I wish there was more books about the Grbers and Winnie. I have never read a story like this. This book is so fun!! I loved it!!
