Review: The Amazing Days of Abby Hayes: Every Cloud Has a Silver Lining

From Goodreads: Abby Hayes is a fun and quirky fifth grader looking to find her own "super-special" talent. Squeezed between two outstanding older siblings and her protege brother, Abby is determined to make her mark. She takes solace in the words of inspiration from the 73 calendars she has in her room, and records the quotes in her purple notebook. Kids will love Abby's humorous and hip approach to everyday issues.

I really liked this book and I would recommend it to every kid in the world from 8-12 ! It was very funny, random, and a little bit sad. This book is about a young girl named Abby Hayes who is starting the fifth grade. She collects calendars and is a very good writer! She also looks so different from her family that if I saw her somewhere in public with them, I  would say," Are you lost kid?"

First of all, she has curly, red hair that a thousand clips would never tame, but her family looks nothing like that! Second of all, she is just a normal girl with dreams of being a soccer star, but each and every one of her family members are practically famous. For instance, her father owned his own computer business and designs web pages for clients; her mother was a lawyer and mother of four, and she ran marathons; her little brother, Alex is a math genius and can design robots in the second grade; her twin sisters were good at every sport imaginable! She has a lot to deal with! I loved this book and give it:


A book I really want!
