How Maxwell Grover Stole My House by C.E. Vance

Although aimed at an audience much younger than I am, I enjoyed every minute of this book.

It was well-written, with age-appropriate language and some great gross-out moments.

The children in the story were likeable and acted their age during their adventures. The villain of the piece was disgusting and scary, but not too much for the younger reader.

A fun read that you and your kids will love.







Synopsis:

What if every fear you ever had about your creepy next-door neighbor turned out to be true?

10- year-old Zeke Langley has become the target of his nasty new neighbor, Maxwell Grover. For reasons known only to him, the unsavory stranger seems determined to make Zeke's life miserable and force his family out of their home.

Inevitably, Zeke and his best friend Winks set out on a journey to discover what Grover is hiding. What they find sends them down a road they never imagined … and on a mission they may never return from.
