Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 3-6-In this sequel to Ten Rules for Living with My Sister (Feiwel & Friends, 2011), it's Pearl's first day of fifth grade, and she and her new best friend, JBIII, are determined to claim as much maturity as possible, even if that means only walking 10 feet ahead of Pearl's dad on the way to school. The story really begins when Pearl is given a writing assignment about her summer. Instead of going to the Wild West as planned, the family ended up taking a Staycation, since Pearl's dad has lost his job, and money is tight. Fraught with long trips to a discount grocery store in Brooklyn and refrigerator pizza meals, Pearl's summer looked to be a huge disappointment, but she tried to be enthusiastic for her family's sake. When her sister landed a job to help out, Pearl's wheels began to turn, and she tried her own hand at business. Along the way was summer camp, a big fight with JBIII, and even a trip to the hospital. Pearl is engaging and funny and will remind readers of that bouncy, noisy kid in the back of the bus who can't sit still. The flashback structure is a bit awkward, and Pearl's voice is often more mature than her characterization, but this is still a fun, heartfelt read. Hand it to kids who can't get enough realistic fiction. Cartoon drawings suggest Pearl's own from her summer scrapbook.-Jamie Kallio, Orland Park Public Library, ILα(c) Copyright 2011.

From Booklist

The Ramona-esque star of Ten Rules for Living with My Sister (2011) is back, and this time she has to write the perennial essay known to many an elementary-school student: What did you do on your summer vacation? In a narrative that is structured like the outline of an essay, with headings and subheadings, 10-year-old Pearl Littlefield reflects back and begins with “I. My dad got fired,” followed by “A. My family was shocked.” This event restructures Pearl and big sister Lexie’s entire summer, as their Wild West family vacation is canceled in favor of the more economically friendly New York “staycation.” When she is not busy being a tourist in her own city, Pearl is looking for ways to earn money; fighting with her best friend, JB III; and attending Camp Merrimac with her nemesis, Jill. It’s a summer of growth for young Pearl, as she realizes that life has its ups and downs, and a fun read for middle-graders who like their fiction realistic and their protagonist feisty. Grades 3-6. --Ann Kelley

I shared Martin's first book about Pearl Littlefield, TEN RULES FOR LIVING WITH MY SISTER, with a classroom of 4th/5th graders, and all (even the boys) loved it. I was so glad to see another book about Pearl, and this one is just as good as the first. Ann Martin is one of the best authors writing today for young people.

The only thing I did not like was the fact is that there were no charts. The other book had a lot of charts. It made the book more interesting.
