"Just one question, Turk," Mom says. "Why didn't you tell us sooner?"
Mom must have read another parenting article. I can almost see the headline: Getting your Teen to Open Up to You.
"Well, er...I wanted to get my business running before I said anything. And," I put on my most innocent face, "I had this crazy idea you might think my business was something shady, stupid or immoral."
I can't tell for sure, but I think Mom and Dad almost look ashamed.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is a kind of good book. It wasn't outstanding like some books I've read. If I had to pick a book this wouldn't be my first choice at all. I would advise that kids read this book.
This book is really ok, but I think that maybe it could have been better. I think this book could be reccommended to little kids like my brother and sister. I don't like this book that much.
