Book Review: Karen's Roller Skates (Baby-Sitters Little Sister, #2) by Ann M. Martin
The most interesting part of reading this story as an adult was the amount of detail included about getting a cast . . . of course pared down for children to understand. I loved the fact that the author nailed how children try to out do each other. In this case, Karen tries to get someone famous to sign her cast because one of her classmates had someone famous sign his cast. And, of course, Karen exaggerates what happened to cause her to break her wrist and gets caught, which is another great lesson for kids not to exaggerate or lie.
There really wasn't much meat to the story reading it as an adult. Because of that, I gave it three out of five stars. I might have enjoyed it more if I had been the target audience, but I did find it very believable. If you enjoyed this book, you may enjoy The Beginners (The Gymnasts, #1) by Elizabeth Levy.
