I liked this book!

Review by Eitan

How would you feel if you lost all of your money? I don't think it would be very fun. Death by Toilet Paper is a story about a boy, his mom, and his Zeyde and how they have to pay their rent in time to keep their apartment house. Will they be able to pay the rent with the help of Mrs. Shneckle? The book was emotional and it made me realize that there are people in this world who are struggling. I give this book 4 stars because I like how the author made me think.

I didnt like this book because it was too depressing. I only liked the cool facts about toilet paper but the story was getting too sad

Review by Frozen2girl

This realistic fiction story is about a boy and his mom and how they navigate through life after they lose all their money. In the middle, a surprise guest moves in and things get chaotic. Read this book to find out what happens next!
