THE NINE LIVES OF FRANK TIPTON by Teresa Powers
The Nine Lives of Frank Tipton (The Redn... The Nine Lives of Frank Tipton (The Redneck Fairy Tales of Shady Holler Trailer Park) (Volume 1) - Teresa Powers

Audrey is so in love with Frank when he asks her to move in with him.  During their time together, the love fades quickly.  Now all Audrey wants to do is kill Frank, no matter who gets in the way.

 

This is one of the funniest tongue-in-cheek books I have read.  I laughed out loud as Audrey makes her plans as well as her reasoning behind each plan.  I could hear this as an audio book and can hear the drawl as the story is told.  This is dark humor at its best.  I plan on reading more of this series.

GRAVITY BUSTERS: JOURNAL #2 OF A CARDBOARD GENIUS by Frank Asch
Gravity Buster: Journal 2 of a Cardboard Genius (Journals of a Cardboard Genius) - Frank Asch

Alex improves his Star Jumper and it is bigger and better than ever.  But he knows he still has a few more inventions to make to ensure success as he goes into space, hopefully with Zoe as his co-pilot.  He needs an anti-gravity belt so the gravity differences between planets can be handled by his body.  He also needs a way to restrict Jonathan's spying and getting in the way. 

 

I love this series.  Alex's asides and explanations as he tells the story have me laughing out loud.  He is a riot.  The drawings that illustrate what he means are great.  Alex and Jonathan are so realistic.  I cannot wait to read book 3.  This is so much fun!

STAR JUMPER: JOURNAL OF A CARDBOARD GENIUS by Frank Asch
Star Jumper: Journal of a Cardboard Genius - Frank Asch

Alex wants to build a space ship to go to the other side of the galaxy, far far away from little brother Jonathan.  Using cardboard and junk he builds his space ship, space suit, and equipment.  Jonathan is sure Alex is building something for him.  When he finds out Alex is not, he is telling Mom.  Alex must find a way to defeat Jonathan's evil deeds. 

 

I laughed out loud at times.  This story is told in the first person point-of-view which makes is so much more funny because Alex is throwing asides at the reader through the whole book.  He is my kind of kid.  I could place myself in Alex's shoes and feel exactly as he was feeling.  I totally enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the rest of the series.

BREAD AND HONEY by Frank Asch
Bread and Honey (A Frank Asch Bear Book)... Bread and Honey (A Frank Asch Bear Book) - Frank Asch,Frank Asch

Ben Bear wants freshly baked bread but it is too hot.  He goes off to school with the promise of a slice with honey when he returns.  He decides to make a drawing of his mother at school.  On his way home, he shows it to his friends who each "suggest" improvements to it. 

 

A cute story for kids.  Mama is surprised at how she looks but with love in her heart keeps her promise to Ben.  I enjoyed it.  I figured the picture would change with each "improvement" but it was fun to read.

LISTEN, LIBERAL OR WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO THE PARTY OF THE PEOPLE by Thomas Frank
Listen, Liberal: Or, What Ever Happened to the Party of the People? - Thomas Frank

Starting with the Carter administration this is a look at how the Democratic party pulled away from its working class base and turned toward the people with money.  It gives a history of the change and the affect it had on the middle class and politics up through today.  I got mad as I read it and had to put it down several times.  I understood what was said.  Mr. Frank kept it simple and, at times, humor poked through.  I wish I would have been more politically aware when I was younger and understood what was happening and how it would impact me and my world.  Worth the read!
