Sydney Frankel, soon to be a sixth-grader, is looking forward to a summer of fun with her best friend, Maggie. She figures she deserves some time to herself to do what she wants before her mom delivers Sydney's new sibling in just four months. Too bad Sydney's mom has other plans for her.
Sydney's forced to take a summer course at the South Miami Community Center. She's allowed to take any class, except for what she really wants—a reading course. But when Maggie comes up with a switcheroo plan so that they can both take the classes they like, unexpected complications arise.

This book is really good. Even as an adult, I found it really well-written and engaging. I liked the inclusion of jewish culture into the book. I think that representation is good and it doesn't always need to be in your face and flashy. I liked the more subtle mentions of it which makes it more normal. I think the story is very good and is a really good moral for children. It is something that kids can relate to, as I was personally signed up for classes that I didn't want to take over the summer in the past. I think that it is very good and isn't just for kids.
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This is a wonderful book. It would make a great present for the kid in your life!

This was genuinely very very cute I loved it. I love anything to do with children’s books because they are always so comforting and this was no exception, I love the way it was written and cannot wait to see what else there is in store for us from this author!
