The Upside of Ordinary by Susan Lubner-ADVISABLE

Lubner, Susan, The Upside of Ordinary. Holiday House, 2012. Pgs. 136. Language: G, Violence: G, Sexual Content: G

 Jermaine is 11 years old and has a dream to be a reality TV producer. Her first film subject is her family. Except her family is fairly ordinary. So, she sets up catastrophes for them to deal with. Will her show turn out great? Or will everyone end up hating her?

The pace is a little slow, but this realistic fiction is slightly humorous with a dill-pickle twist that will attract fans of reality TV. Will Jermaine and readers find the upside of ordinary? MS, HS. ADVISABLE. Reviewer: Kira M, Youth Services Librarian, WHI Public Library
