Editorial Reviews

Review

“A fast-moving plot and relatable protagonist make this stand-alone sequel a good choice for boys who, like Derek, would rather reach for a TV remote or game controller than a book.” —School Library Journal

 “Fans of the first will be utterly delighted by this sequel and anxious to see what Jake will turn up as next.” —BCCB

 

“This is a great package for kids, especially those like Derek who don’t think they like to read.” —Booklist

 

“Another fun, emotionally resonant read for the Wimpy Kid set and beyond.” —Kirkus Reviews

 "Will thrill young readers." —Children's Literature

This is a squeal to My Life as a Book. Derek loves to skateboard. One day while skating he is discovered by a Hollywood movie agent. The agent gives him a job as a stunt boy for the leading character in a movie. While working the job Derek learns a lot of life lessons. Some of the main themes in the novel are reading difficulties, responsibility, friendship, and bullying. This series reminds me a lot of the Diary of A Wimpy kid series. Fans of that collection should check this one out.

This is the second in this series, and my son and I loved this even more than the first. The genre is similar to the Wimpy Kid series, but the characters are so much more genuine. The main character has to deal with some very believable adolescent issues but at the same time, the story has action and humor, and makes you laugh out loud. We can't wait to read the next one!

Format: Hardcover
In this book, a boy named Derek from Los Angeles and his best friend Matt like to skateboard and do parkour for fun. One day at the college campus of UCLA Derek is spotted doing parkour stunts by a man named Tony. Tony is a professional stunt man and stunt director in movies. Tony tells him about how much he like Derek's stunts and told him that he could be a stunt boy for a famous actor in his next movie. Derek compromises with his parents, that if he can be in the movie he would take some extra responsibilities around the house, and do some extra reading for school.
When Derek gets to the set of the movie, he is amazing by all the famous people he meets, and all the free junk food. After Derek tells Matt about his experience, Matt is happy for him at first, but then gets jealous and does something mean to Derek. I think this story is great for anyone to read. It teaches responsibility, humility, and friendship.

My son absolutely loves this book! He says it's his absolute favorite of all time.

Unfortunately the other two books -- my life as a book and my life as a cartoonist were major disappointments.
