A Couple Good Books
This was so good! Well written, likeable characters, believable situations, and a little history lesson all wrapped up in one book.
This is two books in one volume. The students in one of my classes are reading The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Ages 13 3/4 and are actually enjoying it. They "get" most of the humor.
When I was in the school library, I saw that this book contains the sequel, The Growing Pains of Adrian Mole so picked it up and finished it last night.
Adrien is just a riot. He's so naive but thinks he's an intellectual. His home life is a mess and how he keeps his nose above the fray is so entertaining.
