Michaela Davis is an impatient ten-year-old girl and is always getting into trouble, though it¿s not always her fault. When her scientist father introduces Michaela to a robot he created, she feels like she is looking into a mirror. Could she possibly use this replica of herself to her advantage? Constantly receiving detentions, bad grades, and getting grounded, Michaela decides to take the robot for a test drive. Maybe her life would be easier if she had a twin to do everything for her. With failing attempts, an annoying older brother, bad habits, and a demanding mother, having a successful plan is hard.

The Substitute Kid was a nice, short read. The characters were quirky and original. I really enjoyed all the dialogue. It was very realistic. It got a little annoying that certain sentences were repeated. The writing seems like a fifth grade wrote it; it¿s simple and explains everything to the reader but it doesn¿t seem revised.

This book has a great moral lesson that both younger and older people can understand. The meaning of this story is clear once you read it and it will stay in your mind.

I read this book in 75 minutes, and could not put it down. It's a funny story about a 10 year old girl that loves trouble! She sends a robot to school in her place, and kaos ensues.
This book is perfect for readers around 10 years old. The dialogue is extremely authentic, and very funny.
Buy The Subsitute Kid for your 4th and 5th graders, they will love it!
