      This was such a great book It was equal parts fun and realistic, and the characters felt real enough that they could be kids I ve actually met.I liked Summer She was surrounded by pretentious people, but was refreshingly down to earth However, in realistic teen fashion, she did experiment with new clothes and hanging out with the popular crowd, even if it wasn t right for her I feel like most teens tweens go through stages of figuring out, Do I belong here And Summer s experience was spot on.I a [...]

      Bingo Summer is about the happenings of a Mom and her two girls once they hit the lottery on a Bingo scratch off card It tells the problems that the mother runs into with the publicity and then moves to another town to escape it The story picks up with the hardships of adjusting to a new school for Summer, the older of the sisters No matter how hard she tries, Summer just doesn t fit in until she returns to the person she really is Meeting Anna and Dink changes her world in her new surroundings.

      Great book with a great story and a good moral, it shows how all teens, weather poor or rich still strugle with friends, and things they want to do versus what a friends wants to do, I think most girls and boys will enjoy this story in middle school The cover looks to be targeted to girls, but if a boy picks it up I do think he will like it as what tween would not dream of hitting the loto I really enjoyed this book and recommend it for book clubs or any tween.

      3.5 Stars This book was won from a giveaway This book was very entertaining, rarely boring, had a pleasant writing style, and had characters different enough from each other that you could tell them apart Overall, it was a good book So why only 3.5 stars The only problem with this book that I really had was the fact that it seemed sort of generic This is a children s middle grade book, so I do expect some simplicity I keep in mind what age range a book is for when I m rating it But there s a dif [...]

      This story was filled with many lessons for a young teen to learn A mother with her two young daughters are in the throes of poverty, are celebrating Summer s birthday the oldest child as they usually do at 10 lotto ticket As Summer finishes scratching the ticket she is hoping to at least win the 10 back so they can buy milk, instead she wins the big time prize 10 million dollars In that instant everything changes Friends and members come calling for handouts To much for mom to handle they move [...]

      Bingo Summer was a very nice read It started out strong and stayed good throughout Dawn Malone introduced a varied cast of entertaining characters She did a nice job adding a few unexpected twists to the junior high classmates the mean girls had redeeming qualities, the weirdo stepdad wasn t a total jerk, her flighty mom really loved her daughters Summer won 10 million dollars on her 13th birthday After getting over the initial shock of winning, the family is overwhelmed with attention they d ra [...]

    7. Sylvia says:

      When I first saw the concept for Bingo Summer, my immediate thought was that it sounded cute but would probably be on the cheesy side of entertaining A lottery winning kid just screams of simple lighthearted fun, right Oh goodness gracious was I ever wrong I can not put into words how delighted I was with Bingo Summer in comparison to what I expected.Without offering up any spoilers, I will say that Bingo Summer is so much The writer visits many issues that kids deal with parents, siblings, ste [...]

      A lucky lottery ticket for Summer Haas s 13th birthday suddenly makes her family instant millionaires but the change in lifestyle is unsettling While it s nice to live in a big house in a new town where no one knows them that her mother impulsively buys in the Chicago suburbs, Summer still has to adjust to making new friends and starting a new school It s not that she s ashamed of why she no longer has to shop at thrift stores for clothes, but she s not sure if she wants her new friends to know [...]

      I would never have thought to read a book recommended for a 9 12 year old age range, but I am so glad I did I am much older than this age range by 35 years or so and enjoyed this book from beginning to end I found I couldn t put the book down all weekend until I knew how it ended I am adding this author to my must read list

    10. Margo Dill says:

      I love the idea for Bingo Summer and it caught hold of me from the first page The voice is terrific, and the storyline includes middle grade issues as well as dealing with family and siblings I think girls especially would really get into this book It just goes to show that all problems are not solved just because we win the lottery

    11. Darlene says:

      I won this book as a first reads giveaway I recommend it for readers of all ages it was a page turner from start to finish with its theme of remaining true to yourself the characters come to life in this bookI cant say enough about this book.It will keep you entertained and bring home the what if this happened to me what would I do

    12. Emily Elliff says:

      When Summer wins the lottery, she doesn t know who her true friends are I was drawn into Summers journey from the first page Just as I thought I had the ending figured out, the author pulls a surprise punch I didn t put the book down until I finished it Very enjoyable

    13. Loreen says:

      Bingo summer was a real fun read It explores the effects of bullying and self concept I highly recommend it to any middle grade reader

    14. Katie says:

      Enjoyable Middle Grade read I liked the main character and the problems seemed fairly real for any child who has to move as a teenager Just a hint of romance for this 13 year old girl, which seemed realistic.

    15. Michelle Isenhoff says:

      First time author Dawn Malone has crafted a winner in Bingo Summer Charming, sweet, and artfully written, it takes top honors in my summer reading list It s just a superb example of middle grade lit I loved it Okay, the initial catalyst for the plot is pretty unlikely Summer wins ten million dollars with a lottery ticket But the emotions the story conjures up once it gets rolling are absolutely universal Forced to move across the state by her impetuous mother, Summer starts eighth grade in a new [...]

      When I was between the ages of 8 and 13 years old, I would spend quiet hours roaming the aisles of our local library I would gather many hardcover books, which crinkled when they were opened, that they would stack perilously in my arms I had many favorites that I found just by browsing, and, when I began reading Bingo Summer, I was transported to those moments where I would discover a wonderful new book From the first chapter, Malone has the reader hooked Her casual tone describing the moment wh [...]

      This was a cute if somewhat formulaic middle grade read Summer s life changes instantly when she wins 10 million on a scratch off ticket on her birthday So much so that her mom packs up Summer and her sister and moves them to the town of Dorrance Summer has trouble fitting in with the ritzy lifestyle the girls in the town seem to lead, and as a result has trouble making friends She s about to learn that having money doesn t solve all your problems, but can she convince her family of that The big [...]

      When I first saw this advertised I thought I have to review this for my niece going into middle school this year she will love it She will, but this book is so much than what I thought it would be, it is a great book The characters are so believable, at times I felt like I was there and wanted to pull Summer aside to give her some of the advice she seemed to so desperately want I felt so bad for her, the story starts out on her 13th birthday and it is Summer, her sister J.C and their mother Mag [...]

    21. LAWonder10 says:

      This is an entertainingly light from rags to riches story As was Summer s family tradition, she was enjoying her thirteenth birthday, scratching off the chosen numbers on a lottery card This had been a very unusual tradition for as long as she could remember On each birthday, the person receives a lottery ticket in a birthday card to try to win a lottery prize Of course, nobody ever won They certainly couldn t afford the 10 it took to buy the ticket However, this year Summer actually won somethi [...]

    23. Tonja Drecker says:

      This is a cute, heart warming story about a girl who goes from rags to riches and learns about herself and life in the process.The characters are well done, making it easy to slip into their skins Their problems are easy to sympathize with well, maybe not the getting rich part, but the struggles for acceptance, fitting in and self esteem are very fitting for this age group The dialogue is believable, and the setting nicely described I loved the character s reactions to the changes that she was [...]

    25. Colleen B says:

      I found myself really relating to Summer although I ve never won millions on a scratch off Her struggle with learning the difference between working to fit in with the popular kids impressing people to make friends and being real and true to yourself just finding the place you fit to find friends was just so REAL So true to life I think it s something most kids in junior school and high school go through Heck it s something people continue to go through as adults.Like Summer, I ve had times of t [...]

    26. Rebecca says:

      A fun and thoughtful read about the changes Summer faces when she and her family win 10 million dollars in a lottery scratch off When Summer s mother moves the family to avoid the publicity, Summer isn t sure that the lottery winnings were worth the changes They may have a bigger house, enough food, and clothes bought new instead of second hand, but losing her best friend and the town where she grew up takes a lot of the joy out of the new belongings.I thought Summer s character was developed we [...]
