    'Trustworthy or Untrustworthy'

    Joe Cardone is the best brother that Jason Cardone could ask for. Joe is letting his younger brother Jason have the summer of his life by letting him and his friends use his apartment in Toronto for the entire summer. Jason can't believe how amazing his summer is going to be. There is one thing that Jason must do and that is to keep his brother's lease free from jeopardy. After Jason, Don Champion, and Ferguson Peach arrive in Toronto, they find it hard to keep the lease for Joe especially with Joe's grumpy landowner Plotnick on their case. The summer isn't turning out the way Jason planned, and the boys find that it is difficult to keep Joe's rent free from jeopardy. When the boys perform a scheme of revenge on Plotnick, it backfires and they find themselves in trouble. They need to act fast before Plotnick finds out who is responsible of the scheme. Will this scheme wind up losing Joe's apartment for good? In this book, there were many things that I liked and disliked. I liked how the characters interacted with each other in order to bring out more action to the reader. I also liked how the author used description in order to present the characters' thoughts and feelings on a certain topic taking place in the novel. The plot in this book was amazing and really easy to follow. Even though there were many things that I liked about the book, there were also things that I didn't like. I didn't like how the author gave away really important information away early in the novel. I also didn't like some of the scenes in which the author was trying to give the reader a mental picture. Some of these descriptions were too broad and I couldn't get a mental picture. There wasn't enough feelings and emotions of the other characters in the story. Before readers begin to read this book, there is some other information that you should know about. Losing Joe's Place is a book that has a huge amount of action taking place through the entire novel. The author Gordon Korman uses a lot of description to bring out the characters' personality, feelings, and emotions. This book is similar to the events in real life. It can bring out many past experiences with a family or friends. Anyone who enjoys reading books of Gordon Kormon or any classical book, I highly recommend this book to you. Overall, this book is very enjoyable, humorous, and exciting to read. It is a book that many readers will love.

    kids that have trouble reading should read this book...

    Losing Joe¿s Place a book written by Gordon Korman. My feeling toward reading this book from start to finish where excitement. When I first started reading this book it was kind of boring and I didn¿t feel like reading it. After a while I started to like it and finished the book. I recommend this book to people that love to read. It shows teenage kids that have a hard time in life and pay for their consequences. I liked this book a lot and it was fun to read.
