Overview

Get ready for the sequel to I Represent Sean Rosen, the original and very funny debut novel that has the New York Times–bestselling creator of Big Nate, Lincoln Peirce, proclaiming, "Sean Rosen is my hero!"

The stakes are higher, the funny stuff is funnier, and the completely original and individual wunderkind Sean Rosen is balancing middle school and his career in ways never before seen. The adventures of Sean Rosen and his fictitious manager, Dan Welch, continue as Sean works on his screenplay, deals with seventh grade and track practice and a dog-walking job, records his podcasts, and tries to keep his brush with stardom a secret from his parents. Meanwhile, a major Hollywood movie studio has sent a private detective to Sean's town to find out who this Sean Rosen kid is, and what the nature is, exactly, of his big idea. Featuring another original Christoph Niemann cover, this is perfect for fans of Jack Gantos, Jeff Kinney, and Carl Hiassen.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
04/01/2014
Gr 5 Up—Sean Rosen is back. After his first bid to sell his big idea was unsuccessful, he and his fictional agent Dan Welch are working to get his screenplay submitted to a major production company. Since his last attempt to sell the project, some of the players in Hollywood have changed jobs and are now engaged in a bidding war. While all of this plays out, Sean decides to take a trip to visit his grandmother in an effort to finish writing the script for A Week with Your Grandparents himself. When he gets home, he finds the stakes have been raised and really doesn't know whom to trust. To complicate matters, Sean has to juggle his friendships and schoolwork and take care of the neighbor's dog. While he is away on his school camping trip, however, the truth finally comes out and Sean's deceptions unravel. The protagonist's creativity shines through each chapter. When he discovers a family history of deception, though, it really gives him an opportunity to rethink what he's doing and the lies he's been telling. This is a fitting second installment to a delightful series and it leaves the story wide open for a third volume.—Wayne R. Cherry, Jr., First Baptist Academy Library, Houston, TX
Kirkus Reviews
2014-02-19
A fledgling screenwriter, podcast creator and potential entertainment-industry innovator, 13-year-old Sean is full of ideas. Similar in format to Sean's first appearance (I Represent Sean Rosen, 2013), which detailed Sean's exploits as he fielded studio offers on his screenplay, this sequel continues his adventures with the Hollywood industry. Sean is determined to gain the attention of Hank Hollywood, his moniker for the chairman of an influential entertainment company. However, an attempt to pique Hank's interest in Sean's secret, clever new concept for the industry yields unexpected results. Sean is soon mired in a studio bidding war and becomes the target of intrigue as a mysterious third party investigates his activities. Amid the Hollywood drama, Sean must contend with friends' dating dilemmas, a near first kiss and a calamitous petsitting job. Baron adeptly conveys Sean's perspicacity in his droll first-person narrative. Sean's experiences with the stratagems of the Hollywood executives and revelations about his grandfather's misdeeds help Sean define his feelings about trust and friendship. When a surprise visitor arrives at Sean's school retreat, readers can be confident that his new maturity will enable Sean to cope with the bittersweet truth delivered by an industry expert. Readers will relish his bravado, wit and creativity as Sean emerges from his encounters wiser yet still determined to follow his dreams. (Fiction. 11-14)
Newark Star Ledger
“By the end of this well-done novel, I loved Seany, as his parents call him. He is a sweet, smart, talented kid, the sort you hope your children are and are friends with.…Baron makes very good use of dialogue between teens.”
Everyday E-books
“The aspiring movie writer/mogul Sean Rosen is back …and he is as irrepressible as ever. Adolescents and near adolescents cannot help but identify with Sean in many ways.… The reader enjoys every minute spent with this pint-sized creative genius.”
Common Sense Media
“Jeff Baron succeeds in spinning a complicated ethical web for young Sean. All the fundamentals for a successful career in entertainment—hustle, daring, honesty, commitment, and hard work—are emphasized here in the best way …Sean, 13, knows his place in the world and so can take setbacks in stride.”
Kids Book Review
“Sean Rosen … is almost a famous person, which he is trying to hide from his parents. … A lot like The Wimpy Kid series, which I have read many times. Sean Rosen seems like a kid that I would like and be friends with if we ever met.”
Wellesley Books Newsletter
“Very funny. I liked it because it included real-life scenarios [and] showed that kids can do everything that adults can do. … Would be a great movie and the movie inside the book would be a good movie also. Overall the book is realistic, funny and a good read.”
