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
