#4: From Ms. Pelosi, Reading Teacher

Fearless Fourteen by Janet Evanovich continues the Stephanie Plum series-- In this story, Plum, a hapless bail bondsman in Trenton, New Jersey, is sucked into a bank robbery gone wrong with people named Bugger, Zook, Mooner, and Stalker Gary. She is also called in to assist Ranger in a security detail for a desperate aging singer named Brenda who decides she wants to become a reality star and follows Plum around filming all of her mishaps and just generally getting in the way.

If you want to laugh out loud, read any of Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum books. Everything that can go wrong does when Stephanie Plum tries to pick up her skips--bombs, naked old men, monkeys, etc. Her sidekick, a character with a colorful background named Lulu, is just as funny. Stephanie’s love interests are a cop named Morelli and a security agent named Ranger who are driven crazy trying to protect her. This book is an easy summer read that will make you laugh out loud. Book numbers 1-13 were even funnier!
