Alexis "Alex" Evins is a first-class prankster. When she plays a particularly disastrous prank (hair + fire=bad), her dad sends Alex (and her older brothers) to a character-building after-school program. There, the Evins siblings are faced with the ultimate test of teamwork, leadership, and responsibility. Can the "Evil Evins" pass the course in one piece, or are they destined for an epic fail?
"...witty, laugh-out-loud romp. Whittemore handles not only the comedy but deftly portrays Alex's and her brothers' advancement into a more mature state of mind. It should keep middle-schoolers laughing from start to finish. Funny and perky."--KirkusHere's the deal. Jo is ADORABLE and HILARIOUS. This book is ADORABLE and HILARIOUS PLUS. For real folks? If you have a sassy and funny 9 to 13 year old in your life (9 year old who is sophisticated, or a 12-13 year old who is not quite ready for teen fare) ... or if you are a "tween" at heart, get this book.
"Secondary characters have surprising depth. There's plenty of humor along the way to redemption and healing as Alex and her brothers learn to work as a team and as a family."--School Library Journal
