I LOVED this book. It is funny, and it's about family. Could it get any better??? This book is very well written, and I have no bad comments about this book. This book is fiction, and I recommend it for all ages. I really like how the author wrote the characters and their unique personalities. I really enjoyed that there were so many characters in this book. There was some bad language in this book, but overall, it was terrific! I think that Gary Paulsen did a wonderful job on this book, and I hope you do too. I give this book five stars!!!
