Some things are better together. Like peanut butter and jelly. Or Annie and Jason. So when her best friend's house is threatened with foreclosure, Annie Jenkins is bursting with ideas to save Jason's home. She could sell her appendix on eBay. (Why not?) Win the lottery. (It's worth a shot!). Face the evil bankers herself. (She's one tough cookie, after all.) Or hunt down an elusive (and questionably real) pirate treasure. Whatever the plan, it has to work, or this is undoubtedly THE LAST GREAT ADVENTURE OF THE PB&J SOCIETY.
I love Peanut Butter and Jelly but I wasn’t expecting what would happen in this book. I enjoyed the writing and the flow of the story. This is a great book that has a lot of meaning.
The Story & Characters:
Annie and Jason are BBF they have a secret society because they love PB&J. They bury sandwiches when they are unable to be eaten. Jason’s family is going through something and the kids work together with the mean lady across the street to find a treasure and help Jason’s family. This book wasn’t what I was expecting, I found the friendship between the two kids to be cute and the book at times made me very sad. I wasn’t sure what was going to happen and as I started to get closer to the end I actually wasn’t expecting it at all. Annie’s siblings really got on my nerves and I was actually kind of annoyed at times with them. The mean lady across the street surprised me and I really enjoyed reading about her. I thought the book was missing a lot of detail and I was looking for better connection between the characters but overall I really enjoyed reading this and I actually may have cried a little at the end.
I really liked this book and think it would be a great read for kids and teens. Adults would enjoy it also or might be a good book to read with your kids. If you are looking for a quick read with a strong message I suggest this book.
Thanks for stopping by to check out my review.
Have a great day and Happy Reading!
