Middle School & High School
Sibling rivalry at its finest. Whether it’s on the hockey ice, at school, or at home, Greg and Megin just can’t seem to get along. She calls him Grosso, and he calls her Megamouth. They battle with donuts, cockroaches, and hair. Will it take a tragedy for them to realize how much they actually care for each other?
Jerry Spinelli has written many books but this one is my favorite. It features one of my favorite story telling plots. The author switches between Greg and Megin’s part of the story. Some people don’t like when the story jumps to a different character like this but I love it. It’s cool to see another character’s side of the story.
This is another book I listened to on cassette a lot as a child. It’s now on CD and I would suggest listening to it. Reading a book yourself is great but listening to a book is great too. Sometimes the way the book is read makes the story even funnier. Sometimes multiple readers read the book or the reader uses a funny voice for a certain character. I can think of many characters I’ve like more just by how the reader voices them. Books on audio are also great for long road trips. My family loves to listen to books, whether on long drives or just running errands.
