‘Ten Rules For Living With My Sister’ is the newest book written by Ann M. Martin, who is best known for her ‘Babysitters Club’ series. While ‘Ten Rules’ is intended for a slightly younger audience it is an interesting, gripping and ultimately satisfying book; though, it did not engross me a much as the ‘Babysitters Club’ books did when I was younger.
This is a YA book that best suits those from 7-12 and deals with a lot of important issues, namely how to deal with alzheimer’s disease. I thought that the inclusion of a grandfather with alzheimer’s was very timely and would allow for children who read the book to see what the characteristics of the disease are and allow them to learn more about the disease.
While the book was light in other places, it seemed to me that it was pretty cliche: older sister dislikes younger sister, younger sister keeps a journal, younger sister not well-liked at school, parents don’t have much time for the kids. It was not that the book wasn’t well written, it just didn’t seem very original. However, for a YA audience that won’t matter as much.
Overall, ‘Ten Rules For Living With My Sister’ is a fun and interesting read and recommended for YA readers.
