You won't be disappointed purchasing this book. At least I wasn't. Great job, Angela Strong!
Now add an awesome snowball launcher, competition for a puppy, snowmobiles, a living Nativity play, Isabelle, and Micah. Stir gently until the characters gain understanding and growth. Then frost with a neat surprise ending. Enjoy and share with middle school friends.
Angela Ruth Strong has truly captured the essence of a pre-teen who loves God and has good intentions, but is hindered by impetuous actions. I like this story’s first person narrative, including what he says and then thinks.
On the way with his family to his grandparents for the holidays Joey thinks all is lost. He feels his only hope is to start a new business with the hopes of making some money to not only recoup his losses but to look good in his families eyes. Along the way he makes a new friend and renews an old one.What a great fast action story that I feel that 8 to 12 year-old boys as well as girls would love to read. The author, Angela Ruth Strong describes the action as well as the relationships so well that you can't wait to know the ending.
I was given this book in exchange for my honest review from the author.
What I liked--Joey has a strong personality. It is very easy to see a twelve-year-old boy getting into the trouble he gets into and learning the lessons he learns. I also enjoyed the escapades he goes on--some are downright funny!
What I didn't like so much--the lessons Joey learns could be developed a little deeper. For instance, when Joey keeps thinking he striving for
I really liked the Snowball Fight Professional because it was very funny. My favorite character was Joey’s grandpa because he says things backwards, which always made me laugh. I loved how when Joey sprayed the back sidewalk with a hose, and his grandpa had to take out the trash, he talked about how he had to “bear the trash can to keep the straps out.” - Xavier Brown (4th Grade)
I really liked the Snowball Fight Professional because Joey and Christine finally got along because they both wanted one of grandmas’ husky’s. I thought it was such a good idea that they both worked together to find out what grandma wanted for Christmas. I also think it is so nice that Joey helps his mom by reminding her she can still do yoga after she gets hurt. It is such a cute book! - Maci Brown (4th Grade)
I loved this book! I liked how I could relate to so many places in McCall. I remember that spot by the lake where Joey was shooting snowballs at Isabella. While reading this book, our family would always laugh when Joey would have a silly thought or action. Wait until you hear about his bet with his cousin and what he as to do when he loses! The part when they drove in the river scared me! I am so glad they were all safe. I hope Mrs. Strong continues to write this series. - Antwon Brown (6th Grade)
