"Violet Sparks, nearly 11, reaches her limit when her brother, Simon . . . smashes a fly on her head while she is performing at her piano recital. She proceeds to organize the younger siblings in her neighborhood into an army that demands retribution and change. . . . Ephron's novel is not only a very funny story, but could also be a great discussion-starter about relationships, families, and power." -- School Library Journal

Continues to be a good book for the much-abused youngers of the world, although I'd hesitate to give it to any child actually related to me lest they get terrible ideas about lizards and "duh". Still, fun. Read full review
