Summary: Pip, whose real name is Phillip Isaac Penn, feels that the world is against him as he struggles to deal with angry parents, a bossy older sister, a frazzled teacher, and memorable characters such as Bully Bart, Cheater Chaz, Know-It-All Nell, Liar Lizzy, Stealer Steffan, Conman Cody, and Tattle-Tale Tess. Every day of the week brings another challenge that Pip handles in his own endearing way. Yet, no matter how hard he tries, he realizes that it’s just not easy being a kid.
My Review: Pip really dislikes his name and no matter how hard he tries to be good, he always seems to get into trouble at home and at school.
I was smiling the whole time I read this book. It is such a cute, fast read. Pip is a really great character. He reminded me of myself when I was younger. I was always getting yelled at.
I will definitely be recommending this book to everyone. It’s a great book for younger teens and kids, but it’s so much fun that older teens and adults will enjoy it too.
My Rating: 4 stars
