Clementine is having not so good of a week.
  • On Monday she’s sent to the principal’s office for cutting off Margaret’s hair.
  • Tuesday, Margaret’s mother is mad at her.
  • Wednesday, she’s sent to the principal…again.
  • Thursday, Margaret stops speaking to her.
  • Friday starts with yucky eggs and gets worse.
  • And by Saturday, even her mother is mad at her.
 Okay, fine. Clementine is having a DISASTROUS week.

Review: Clementine (Clementine #1)

User Review  - Jenny Doyle - Goodreads

I really enjoyed this book. I loved how witty Clementine was and the words she came up with were hilarious. I loved that she was able to stand up for herself and solved her problems with Margaret by herself. The only thing that annoyed me was that she was a bit of a drama queen! Read full review
