GUEST AUDIOBOOK REVIEW: The Graham Cracker Plot by Shelley Tougas

  • Author: Shelley Tougas

Meet Daisy Bauer and her sometimes best friend, Graham, who are determined to break Daisy's dad out of prison in this hilarious middle-grade debut.

No one believes her, but Daisy Bauer knows her dad has been wrongfully imprisoned and that it's up to her to break him out of jail (aka Club Fed). She has a plan that she's calling the Graham Cracker Plot because it was all Graham's idea. She just needs a miniature horse, a getaway truck, and a penny from 1919--the idea coin. 

This funny, nail-biter of a novel is about friendship and admitting you're wrong. Debut novelist Shelley Tougas balances humor and warmth against themes of family, broken trust, and unconditional love against all odds.

~ Interview with my 9 almost 10 year old ~

Describe The Graham Cracker Plot in five words:  Awesome. Hilarious. Adventurous. Exciting. Good. 

Did the like the audiobook: Yeah. The narrator sounded like she was a twelve year old girl, which was a good thing. Because Daisy is almost twelve.

What I liked: They were trying to break Daisy's dad out of jail which was cool. He was in there in there for messing with drugs and blowing stuff up. (Mom automatically thinks of the grownup show, Breaking Bad.)

Favorite character: Graham. He's Daisy's friend. He acts dumb but he's really not. He's smart. He's always talking about going to Canada and I'd like to go there someday too.
Ashley was funny too. She's kind of crazy and she has---well, I don't want to mess anything up for you, but she can do stuff with her head.

Did you learning anything? There are consequences for both kids and adults. 

How many stars would give The Graham Cracker Plot? I would give it 6 stars because it was incredibly awesome!
