“The Misadventures of the Family Fletcher” by Dana Alison Levy is about four boys: Sam the soccer player, Eli the smart one, Jax the hockey player, and Jeremiah (a.k.a., Frog) the crazy kindergartener with the combined energy of three six year olds into one very concentrated size.

Read about these kids’ school year in their kindergarten (Frog), fourth (Eli and Jax), and six grade (Sam) school years! All of the kids are from different religions like Hinduism, Christianity, and a couple more so they celebrate a bunch of holidays. The author uses notes at the beginning of each chapter to recall things that happened in past chapters and hints things that might happen in future chapters. Though they have two dads the kids live very normal lives.

This book was a little disappointing because it didn’t live up to the expectations I had. I expected it to be a crazy adventure during the school year. Instead it was just some normal kids’ school year during their kindergarten, fourth, and sixth grade year. I did like the notes that the characters wrote each other.

I rate this book 8+ because it has a lot of characters and you could get very mixed up with all the characters. I also give this three and a half stars because it didn’t really have a plot and I expected the kids to have some plans because the book said that their plans of success veered off in different directions.
