Book Review - Stealing Air
You can't just ask for the chance to fly . . .
When his dad announced they were moving to Iowa, Brian looked forward to making some new friends. But on his first day there he makes an enemy instead -- Frankie Heller, the meanest kid in town. Brian needs to hang out with someone cool to get back on track. . . .
Alex has always been the coolest guy around, and good with money, just like his dad. But now the family is struggling, and he needs to make some cash to keep up appearances. Then an opportunity falls in his lap . . . .
Max is a scientific genius, but his parents are always busy with their own work. Building an actual plane should get their attention -- if only he wasn't scared of heights . . .
The answer to all three boys' problems starts with Max's secret flyer. But Frankie and the laws of popularity and physics stand in their way. Can they work together in time to get their plan AND their plane off the ground?
My Take on the Book
This was a great story of teamwork as well as friendship. The author did a great job at putting together a list of characters that were easy to enjoy. The author developed the characters well, and this allows the reader to empathize with the characters, and at the same time want to see them achieve their goals. I particularly liked the character of max. He was fun-loving and super-smart! This book was very fun, and I for one hope to read more from this author in the future.
