The Mealworm Diaries
By Anna Kerz
Pub. Date: April 2009
3 out of 5 stars
PG - Violence
Recommended

A tragic accident leads to the moving of Jeremy and his mom. Once settled in Toronto, Jeremy is enrolled in a new school. There a new friendship forms and a cute girl walks into the picture. School is starting out all right, until he is paired up with an annoying, gibbering classmate (who no one likes) for a science project. During the day, Jeremy is annoyed to death. During the night, Jeremy is scared to death. His dreams are being plagued by a dark secret no one knows about&

The Mealworm Diaries could easily be made into a Lifetime Movie. It had an elementary plot and narration that didnt dawdle. The added humor made the characters more likeable and the story easier to read through. Unfortunately, because of the books even energy level throughout the book, the climax hardly differed from the rest. This book had a slightly sleepy semblance. Yet, I can easily see The Mealworm Diaries used for discussion in Middle School Reading classes.
