Ten

Ten

By Lauren Myracle

Winnie Perry is a 10 year old girl who lives in Atlanta with her sister Sandra, her brother Ty, and her mom. She is proud to be crazy which she shows through an overactive imagination and quirky behaviour, even if it makes things weird sometimes. For example, she invented the Bathroom Lady, a woman who lives in the sewer and uses her pruny claws to snatch kids through the toilet and then eats them. Or when she bought coffee in New York and put lots of sugar and whipped cream in it because she didn’t like the taste. This book is about her and how she survived her year as a ten year old. From mean girls to the Big Apple and big-sisterly advice, Winnie will write month by month the ups and downs of her 10 year old life. In this book, follow Winnie and her imagination through the “Land of Double Digits…where, unicorns frolicked. Maybe they were invisible, fine. But they frolicked anyways.”

This is the first book in Lauren Myracle’s series, which includes Eleven, Twelve, Thirteen, and Thirteen Plus One. I am looking forward to reading Eleven. My favourite character was Amanda, one of Winnie’s BFFs because she was nice but a lot like Winnie, but a little less wierd. These books are for girls only. Sorry guys but you just won’t get the story.
