Savvy Smith and her family recently moved to England to live. Savvy misses her best friend from Seattle. She's trying to make new friends in London, but it seems no one has room for a new friend in their life, especially a weird American. An opportunity arises for Savvy to work at the school newspaper. She has always wanted to be a journalist and she hopes this might be a way to make some friends. She applies for the position, but her lack of experience makes her a paperboy instead of columnist. If only she could find a way to prove that she is a good writer. But how?Sandra Byrd always tells a good story. I love her Friends for a Season books, so I was excited to read her new series. Asking for Trouble did not disappoint. I enjoyed Savvy's character, how she thought things out and how she struggled to understand all the differences in British culture and language. Sandra did a great job with her British accents and lingo in the other character's dialogue. It was fun to read. I also liked Savvy's determination and drive to make her own future, rather than mope about what she didn't have or try to follow someone else. This was a fun read that made you think and I highly recommend it.
Asking For Trouble is a story about a girl going through her move to Wexburg, England.Moving is hard on everyone as Savannah Smith finds out. But she is determined to prove herself as a Journalist. I really enjoyed this book and I'm sure you will too.
Sandra Byrd is one of my favorite authors. I like the advice she gives in Asking for Trouble. I really like how Savvy Smith (the main character) deals with the troubles she is faced with and how she asks God for advice about what to do. I really enjoyed Asking for Trouble, and I can't wait to read the second London Confidential, Through Thick and Thin :)
Im a teenager living in the real world. Some days are good, some days I just dont talk about, and sometimes hilarious things happen to me. Asking for Trouble is my favorite kind of book; a slice of what COULD be my life. Sandras writing keeps me curious, laughing, and thinking about the choices I make every day.
Compared to other chapter books, I think Asking for Trouble is the best one ever, because Savvy likes a lot of activities, but she really wanted to write in the newspaper. Savvy lied when she talked about writing for a newspaper, saying that she wrote for a newspaper before, and that she had a whole lot of experience, but she really didn't. She thought that telling the truth to Jack would be a bad idea because she really wanted to write for the newspaper. I know how Savvy feels, because I feel that if I tell the truth about something, it will make me get punished, but sometimes I don't, and even if I do, telling the truth is right. I also like the story because you get to talk about the story and you get to make predictions and inferences of what's going to happen.I like when Savvy's friend called her fortune cookie :). That's what I like about Asking for Trouble. If someone were to ask if they should read this book I would say yes so that they can learn what happens to Savvy and the newspaper. I think that kids who like to write would be interested in this book.
