Chocolate-Covered Baloney

Chocolate-Covered Baloney (Confessions of April Grace #3) by K. D. McCrite was another fun book provided to me on my nook by Thomas Nelson Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
This book, written in the first-person, reminded me of the Junie B. Jones' books written for much younger kids. April Grace is a sixth grade girl, so definitely older and more mature than Junie B. but still just as funny.
I am looking forward to my twelve-year-old daughter to read this book. It is always fun to discuss books with her and this one will lead to discussions about judging people without knowing their whole story and then leading into asking for forgiveness and forgiving.
This book takes place in 1987 which seemed odd for a book published this year (2012). However, there is an author's note at the end of the book. McCrite explains that she wanted today's youth to realize "what you experience is new to you, but it's not new." It's as reminder that life still happened before cell phones and Google!
Five stars for the tween/young teen population!
