Gina's Review: When the Worst Happens ...
We owe thanks to Adriane Dutkiewicz for this review, because she’s the one who originally gave Gina her first Worst Case Scenario book, and she’s been hooked ever since. I have to say, they are fairly amusing even for the older-than-9-years-old crowd.
Gina’s Review: Worst Case Scenario Junior Edition Series
My review this time is on three books in the Worst Case Scenario Junior Edition Series. The titles are Survival Handbook Junior Edition, Survival Handbook Extreme, and How to Survive Middle School. The books are about how to survive certain things like How to Avoid a Polar Bear Attack or How to Survive a Nosy Sibling or How to Survive a Mean Teacher. The books give details on how to avoid things like poison ivy and what to do if you’re attacked by a gorilla. They also give possible responses to bullies and how to survive getting a bad grade. The stuff in the book is mostly funny, but it’s not really very useful. For example, the book tells you how to know the difference between an alligator and a crocodile, but it also recommends you don’t get close enough to tell the difference.
I would recommend these books to someone who has a good humor and enjoys traveling or reading about it. My favorite book of the three is Worst Case Scenario Survival Handbook Junior Edition. My favorite section in that book is How to Survive Getting a Bad Grade because they suggest that before your parent gets wheeled away to the hospital after seeing your grades, you place their hand on the x so they can sign. I hope you enjoyed this review and read the books.
It’s good to know I’ll be well taken care of in the event that a bad report card lays me low!
