#BookReview: The Summer of Bad Ideas by Kiera Stewart

In this funny, big-hearted friendship story, perfect for fans of Wendy Mass and Linda Urban, twelve-year-old Edie and her impossibly cool cousin, Rae, set out to complete a mysterious list of “Good Ideas for Summertime” that their eccentric late grandmother wrote back when she was their age.

But good ideas? Most of them seem like bad ideas. Reckless. Foolish. Ridiculous. Still, by accomplishing everything on the list, rule-abiding Edie feels certain that she can become the effortlessly brave adventurer she dreams of being, just like her daring cousin and bold grandmother. For this one summer at least, bad ideas are the best shot she has at becoming who she wants to be.

Bad Idea Number One: It’s time for a new set of rules.

Kiera Stewart is a writer for teens and tweens. Her qualifications include never having gotten wisdom teeth. She's been writing since she was five, but with titles such as "Mixed Feelings," "Old Monster, the Bees, and Karen," and the self-congratulatory, "The Amazing Story!" it's no wonder FETCHING was her first published novel.

She has written two novels since FETCHING. HOW TO BREAK A HEART, was also released by Disney-Hyperion (2015); her third, THE SUMMER OF BAD IDEAS, was released by Harper-Collins in May 2017. She lives in Northern California but currently spend much of her time in Nicaragua, learning the language and culture, and doing research for her fourth novel.

This is Endy!!! 

I ended up reading this one since Awesome Annie is still not up to reading these yet.  But she is getting there then there will be no stopping that little girl!  My sister will not be stopped!!! 

This one was pretty cute and I really thought it was interesting that they were going to Florida since that is where I live.  Although I do think that kids my age should know that some of these could get you hurt like catch a snake etc.  Just don't do it!! This story about a family doing crazy things for the summer I think need a disclaimer for kids not to do these things.  

All around I did enjoy this story but the author should have thought about some of the things she picked out for the characters to do. Becuase, even though I will be 13 next month kids my age are stupid and we do and try stupid things.
