I really enjoyed The $150,000 Rugelach

Review by Tilly

I really enjoyed The $150,000 Rugelach by Allison and Wayne Marks! This book is about two kids named Jack and Jillian who enter a cooking contest together that will be live on TV. The person running the contest, Phineas Farnsworth III, is Jack’s idol. Jillian’s mom died, and Farnsworth really wants her to talk about it at the competition, but Jillian doesn’t want to. Farnsworth tries to get Jack to convince her, and Jack almost does it. But then he finds something out that turns him against Farnsworth. There’s a plot twist that’s really unexpected! I would probably rate this book 4/5 stars. I also really liked the recipes at the end of the book. I am going to make the rugelach! I think this book is perfect for kids who like stories about baking, kindness, and friendship!

$150,000 Rugelach

Review by NRab

I really did like the book, I loved how the characters needed confidence, they learned valuable lessens, how they started really focusing on what really matters, and the love. So the story was really really lovely and I'd really love to give five out of five stars instead of just four out of five stars. The reason I can only give four out of five stars is the recipes at the back. The rugelach are just extraordinary, (remember to give them love the EXACT same way they did it in the story so remember to read it) I haven't made the brownies yet but I'm sure they're good, the lemon bars ehhhhhhhhhh WAY too sweet there's just too much sugar and not enough lemon juice. That is why I can't give it five out of five, but I am a very experienced baker for a tween so it could just be me. Well, I definitely recommend this book basically to everyone but specifically people who love to bake. I hope you enjoyed my review and I hope you read this book.
