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.

Not the best book

Review by nschles

It made me too sad to learn about eviction and how people get evicted. But it was a decent story and I really wanted to finish it.
