It is September and Ramona is going back to school. A boy named Danny started teasing her on the bus and Ramona hates it! At home Ramonaís parents are broke and they canít pay the bills! Beezus is going to a party but she canít go because their car isnít working! Will Ramona and Danny become friends? Will Beezus go to her party? Read the book to find out!

I liked this book because I thought it was funny because Ramona is a humorous little girl and she gets into trouble. My favorite part was when Ramona's mother packed her the wrong lunch. She put in her lunch bag a raw egg and Ramona cracked it on her head thinking it was a cooked egg. This book reminded me of the time when my brothers play jokes on me. I know how Ramona might feel.

I think kids that like to laugh a lot should read this book. I recommend this marvelous book to any kids that have a big sister or big brother. You can get some good tricks from this book.
