“And uh…whale oil is obtained by heating the blubber of the whale”. That is how it all started. Linda Fischer wrote an essay on the whale and in return got the nickname of “Blubber”. Wendy the class president started it. Jill and her best friend Tracy Wu laughed at it. When Blubber stepped on the bus that day “Hi Blubber” was what she got and “Blubbery Blubber…blub, blub, blub” from the girls in the back. Spit balls from boys, tripping from Wendy and her coat was stolen by Jill. All she gets is bullying.
This book has all you need in a fiction book. Suspense, humor, sadness and more. Its humor is great, although it has some curse words. This book takes you through so many adventures, such as Halloween with Tracy, Warren’s Bar-Mitzvah, Jill’s little brother Kenny’s facts! It is great fun.
One of my favorite parts is when they do a prank at Halloween. I can’t tell you more about it, you just have to check it out. I recommend it to readers who enjoy adventure, suspense and fun in their books.
