I have been reading a great book by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor. The name of it is The Boys Start the War/ The Girls get Even. It's about three girls who come to West Virginia. Four boys dump dead fish on their side of the river to make it look like the river is polluted so they'll go back to Ohio. But then the firls find out. How far will they go to get even?! Find out when you read The Boys Start the War/ The Girls get Even by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor.

This book is similar to the other books in this series because someone is always starting something and getting even. This story reminds me of my brothers because we're always fighting. I love this book because the kids are always thinking of ways to get back at each other.

I recommend this book to people who have mean brothers or sisters who want to get even. You won't want to put this book down because it's fast going, exciting and has fun ideas about what to do with your brothers and sisters!
