Graham Cracker Plot, by Shelley Tougas

Graham Cracker PlotSummary:  No one believes her, but Daisy Bauer knows her dad has been wrongfully imprisoned and that it’s up to her to break him out of jail (aka Club Fed). She has a plan that she’s calling the Graham Cracker Plot because it was all Graham’s idea.  She just needs a miniature horse, a getaway truck, and a penny from 1919—the idea coin.

One thought on “Graham Cracker Plot, by Shelley Tougas

  1. This book was hilarious, and I laughed out loud multiple times. Unfortunately, being hilarious isn’t a criteria for the Mock Newbery Award, or else this book would certainly win.
    This book is about a girl called Daisy who’s trying to spring her dad out of prison for a crime he didn’t commit (unfortunately, he committed other ones). She goes on a quest with her neighbor Graham and a woman named Ashley to help her dad escape jail and then go to Canada (with her dad).
    My favorite part of this book was the writing style. It was funny and helped me see the setting.
    The characters were the weakest point of the book. They all seemed to have one side to them, and I couldn’t really picture them.
    So, while I enjoyed this book for the humor, I don’t think it will win the Mock Newbery.
