SO FUNNY- GREAT BOOK

Thirteen Plus One is the funniest of all the Winnie Years Series so far. There is a lot of changes to the characters, but nothing that changes drasticly, and we understand Winnie's feelings much better. Baby Mags is here, so Winnie, Ty, and Sandra show their nurturing sides, and everyone is growing up. Dinah finnaly starts growing up (a little) and Cinnamon shows her feelings for males (horrible). I don't want to give away the story, but this book is full of laugh-until-your-sides-hurt funniness, sea-turtles, fork-buns, black widows, shoplifting, penguins, cupcakes, hot guys who try to make girls cheat on their boyfriends, and friendship. READ ON!!!!!!!

Disappointment

If I hadn't read Eleven, Twelve, and Thirteen before this book, I'd say that Thirteen Plus One is awesome. But in comparison to these three books before it, Thirteen Plus One was just so ... weak. Winnie had far much more energy than usual, her older, grumpy sister Sandra was no longer grumpy, and Dinah just wasn't Dinah anymore. In the older books, Winnie was laid-back more, and her sister was grumpy and OCCASIONALLY nice, plus Dinah was always the same sweet girl. I felt like I was reading a whole different story when I read Thirteen Plus One, what with the character changes and the overall weak plot. And don't get me started with the whole penguin business! Eleven, Twelve, and Thirteen were a thousand times better than Thirteen Plus One, how many times do I have to say that? I really feel like Lauren Myracle didn't put much thought into this one, and I was pretty disappointed after reading this--I wasted my money and my time. In my opinion, you don't need this book in the series at all, so you can just stop reading the series after you finish Thirteen.

    Disappointing Book

    I have read all of the other books (minus the new one ten) and have thought they were wonderful. This one was just a little too all over the place. You didn't get to meet the other characters at the camp very well, the penguin scene was a little too out there and maybe even pointless, and the ending dream sequence didn't make much sense and was very boring. Don't get me wrong I love the other books but I just hope if she goes further in the Winnie Years Series that the books get better and better and not some good and some oaky. I could have lived without reading this book.
