Teddy Mars: Almost a Winner (Book #2) by Molly Burnham -OPTIONAL

Burnham, Molly Teddy Mars: Almost an Winner (Book #2), 279 pages. Katherine Tegen Books (HarperCollins). $7.  

Language: G (o swears); Mature Content: G; Violence: G.

Teddy has a big family so he never quiet gets enough attention unless its bad attention: like his parents ignoring him, his sisters bullying him, and his little brother torturing him. His little brother named Jake, who he has nicknamed the Destructor, is obsessed with smearing himself with pigeon poop then covering himself in feathers and has taken over Teddy’s quiet place: The neighbor’s pigeon coop where Teddy helps out. Teddy loves World Record Books and ever since breaking a record in the first book, has been trying, along with his two best friends, to break or come up with one. Not to mention the inventions fair at school.

I loved the first book in this series and really find myself wishing that it has ended there so perfectly. This book was like an extra long continuation of all of the annoying things about the first book repeated over and over again and less heart. Although the character writing is wonderful, I have just completely had my fill of these characters now after two books, too bad I had a third in the series to review next.
