Chocolate Covered Baloney (The Confessions of April Grace) by KD McCrite

I decided to review this book because it is written for young girls and I thought my daughter and I could enjoy reading it together. Once we started reading it, I was somewhat surprised by the content of the book.  The book centers around the main character, April Grace Reilly, and her family as they experience some unexpected and crazy situations.

I was really disappointed in this book.  I know it is written for younger girls, however a lot of the book is comprised of sibling rivalry with April's sister, Myra Sue.  The book contains lots of name-calling and disrespectful speech that we do not allow in our house, so why would I want my daughter to read it?  Luckily my daughter quickly lost interest in the book.  One reason I wanted to read this book with my daughter was because it was a Christian book, however there is much of anything faith-wise in it.  I would not recommend this book for young girls.

*I received a complimentary copy of this book from Booksneeze in exchange for this honest review.
