Lunch Money

by Andrew Clements
222 pages, Contemporary
Reviewed by bookRacoon

Fresh novel that is very enjoyable to read.

Plot

Greg Kenton has always had a natural talent for money: he knew how to save it, how it worked, how to grow, and how to make it. One day, his longtime rival and neighbor Maura Shaw starts selling her own comics to Greg's customers. Both of their popular comics start to become well known around the town and area, and the two get more and more competitive. That is, until they both agree to work together and launch their own comics company, targeting their very own middle school.

Morality

Greg and Maura are very competitive; being competitive can be good, but Greg sabotages Maura's comics when their businesses get a bit too heated. Greg is also, in my opinion, a bit too greedy for money. He loves it a lot - until the end of the book, when he changes.

Spiritual Content

God is not mentioned in the book. The characters act rightly, with once again that excess bit of competition and greediness.

Violence

None.

Drug and Alcohol Content

None.

Sexual Content

None.

Crude or Profane Language or Content

None.

Conclusion

Andrew Clements has written another fantastic school story - this time about two kids with their talent for money and competitive nature. I recommend you to read this book, as it has a good ending that clears up any morality problems that are presented earlier.
