Read this book!

Review by Kalanit

Penina Levine is a normal sixth grade girl, and what she really wants is to celebrate Hannukah her way- which basically includes potato pancakes, presents, and her best friend: Zozo. But things start getting messy when Penina finds out the Zozo is going to Aruba for the holiday. Plus, Penina also discovers that her favorite teacher, Mrs. Brown is taking a mysterious leave of absence. Is Penina's holiday ruined, or can she find a way to get back her special holiday?

Good but…

Review by Aquamarine9

This book is good my only complaint is that I read it when I was 10 and it took me like 45 minuets to read. While the description says it is for kids 10 and up my 8 year old brother could read it just fine. I would suggest it for kids 8 to 10. I’m not saying that it’s not a good book. 10 year old me just thought it would be a long read and it wasn’t. Just a warning… Over all it’s a good book just maybe for a younger reader, that’s why I gave it 4 stars.
