This is a wonderful fast read for any kid approaching the dreaded double digits. After turning ten years old, Becky experiences her worst couple of days ever. With the help of her best friend, supportive parents, and an unexpected, thoughtful gift from a cute guy, Becky learns that double digits aren't so bad. A great story to help teach kids about how things could always get worse, but usually everything turns out for the best.

Bottom line: Fun, enjoyable read! I'll definitely be reading more by Ms. Kelley.
