The Secrets of the Greaser Hotel was an awesome book to read! This book is a mildly violent book tinged with hopefulness. Overall, I liked this book. The author used great descriptions. For example, the author described one man with "hands the size of pasta bowls". Another description I liked was when "Allie toppled forward like a chair with two legs missing". I was enthralled by this book. The story was great fun, and I especially liked it when Allie snuck grit and hairballs in the Friendly family's food. I would recommend this book to ages 12 and up. I can't wait for the next book J. Scott Fuqua writes!
