Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 5 Up—Sean Rosen is back. After his first bid to sell his big idea was unsuccessful, he and his fictional agent Dan Welch are working to get his screenplay submitted to a major production company. Since his last attempt to sell the project, some of the players in Hollywood have changed jobs and are now engaged in a bidding war. While all of this plays out, Sean decides to take a trip to visit his grandmother in an effort to finish writing the script for A Week with Your Grandparents himself. When he gets home, he finds the stakes have been raised and really doesn't know whom to trust. To complicate matters, Sean has to juggle his friendships and schoolwork and take care of the neighbor's dog. While he is away on his school camping trip, however, the truth finally comes out and Sean's deceptions unravel. The protagonist's creativity shines through each chapter. When he discovers a family history of deception, though, it really gives him an opportunity to rethink what he's doing and the lies he's been telling. This is a fitting second installment to a delightful series and it leaves the story wide open for a third volume.—Wayne R. Cherry, Jr., First Baptist Academy Library, Houston, TX

Review

“Sean Rosen is back. The protagonist’s creativity shines through each chapter. This is a fitting second installment to a delightful series, and it leaves the story wide open for a third volume.” (School Library Journal)

“A fledgling screenwriter, podcast creator and potential entertainment-industry innovator, 13-year-old Sean is full of ideas…Readers will relish his bravado, wit, and creativity as Sean emerges from his encounters wiser yet still determined to follow his dreams.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“By the end of this well-done novel, I loved Seany, as his parents call him. He is a sweet, smart, talented kid, the sort you hope your children are and are friends with.…Baron makes very good use of dialogue between teens.” (Newark Star Ledger)

“The aspiring movie writer/mogul Sean Rosen is back …and he is as irrepressible as ever. Adolescents and near adolescents cannot help but identify with Sean in many ways.… The reader enjoys every minute spent with this pint-sized creative genius.” (Everyday E-books)

“Jeff Baron succeeds in spinning a complicated ethical web for young Sean. All the fundamentals for a successful career in entertainment—hustle, daring, honesty, commitment, and hard work—are emphasized here in the best way …Sean, 13, knows his place in the world and so can take setbacks in stride.” (Common Sense Media)

“Sean Rosen … is almost a famous person, which he is trying to hide from his parents. … A lot like The Wimpy Kid series, which I have read many times. Sean Rosen seems like a kid that I would like and be friends with if we ever met.” (Kids Book Review)

“Very funny. I liked it because it included real-life scenarios [and] showed that kids can do everything that adults can do. … Would be a great movie and the movie inside the book would be a good movie also. Overall the book is realistic, funny and a good read.” (Wellesley Books Newsletter)
