Book Review: Karma Bites by Stacy Kramer
Karma Bites by Stacy Kramer
As Franny gets ready for the first day of school, she is convinced that her life sucks. She's managed to dye her hair orange, her parents are getting divorced, her two best friends aren't talking to each other, and to top it all off, her crazy grandmother has moved in. Grandma happens to have a few tricks up her sleeves to try and help Franny, but they are only to be used when there are no other options left.
Franny gets her hands on Grandma's trick, a magic box that provides recipes to fix things for you. Franny dives right in and attempts to fix all the things she thinks are wrong with her life, only making things worse. Franny needs to put things back quick, but will she be able to?
This book was just about perfect. The only thing that I really disliked was the way some of the sentences were presented. The characters, especially grandmother, are priceless and unforgettable. The story shows us that sometimes things that seem to be wrong are really what's best in the long run. A great read for teenagers.
