First off, I am so sorry for 2 things. 1- for this being late. I was stressed out last night and had some personal stuff going on. 2- for not getting The Real Z. So, here's the story. I asked for it, the Barnes and Noble had it. But, apparently AG found out about me getting early books from Barnes and Noble or something like that that caused AG to put a "do-not-put-in-anyone's-hands-or-else-you'll-get-fired-or-something-crazy-until-this-date" super strict release date of April 25th for The Real Z. So, I'll get it on the 25th with everyone else.
But luckily, they didn't do the same thing with Tenney Shares The Stage, so I got my hands on it! Here's my review!
I give this book a 9.5 out of 10. I liked how they touched more on Logan's personal life and didn't make Tenney and Logan fight as much. The plot was very interesting for me as a 12 year old and fulfilled the promise for the contemporary line to go into deeper issues than the GOTYs. However, I would change the age rating for this book to 10+ because 8 and 9 year olds wouldn't understand (SPOILER ALERT!) Logan's arrest just to help out his little brother in an emergency- an asthma attack. I also liked AG's approach of characters with disabilities, like Logan's little brother Jude and the kids in the hospital where (SPOILER ALERT!) Tenney and Logan perform. The ending was a bit unrealistic, but what do you expect, it's a Tenney Grant book. Overall, this was a good book and I recommend reading it if you are 10 and older or a mature 9 year old!
AMERICAN GIRL TRIVIA: SPOILER ALERT! Logan is the second American Girl doll to get arrested. The first was Kit.
COMMENT DISCUSSION QUESTION: Teni Chronicles or Tenney books?
