This book made me think more about being Jewish.

This book is about sports which I really like and there is many statistics which I also like. This book taught me that even if you are doing something you love, you should never put it in front of Judaism.

not great

This book was just OK

This book made me think more about friendship.

The Rookie Bookie was okay; but I don’t like how Mitch is obsessed with telling us how he doesn’t have a crush on Jamie. Who cares? Mitch is kind of...strange. Mysterious. 5/10

Awsome

This book made me think more about friendship.

I really liked this book but I wouldn't recommend this book to you if you are less than 8 years old. I liked how Mitch is giving advice to the coach when usually it would be the other way around. You will like this book if you like long books where kids make mistakes and then realize what they did wrong. The characters were very interesting. Hopefully you will like this book!

THI BOOK IS REALLY GOOD because it is all about friendship, moola (money), football (though I'm not that interested) and school which is perfect for kids especially going into middle school. Let's just get one thing straight...……….. NO GAMBLING AT SCHOOL!!!!!

This book made me think more about friendship.

The Rookie Bookie is a good book, with much more than an exciting story. It contains some education on economics, shows the importance of associates, and shows how useful information can be.

It was very entertaining
Submitted 11/4/2019 by BaseballFan48

I really enjoyed this book. The story held my interest. The main character was kind and caring and a bit mischievous. I think other kids will really like reading The Rookie Bookie.

This book was super awesome and cool.

Very nice book with awesome storyline. I have not read the whole book yet but I will definitely read till the end. Makes me want to learn more about math and statistics! I have always loved reading but this book was a surprisingly good book from pj library. (I don't always read all of the books I get but I still like picking them!) Lets hope that we have a Rookie Bookie 2 lined up for publication!

LOVED IT!

The Rookie Bookie is the BEST
Submitted 8/31/2019 by NationalDesignTeam

The Rookie Bookie is now one of my favorite books. It is just one of those books that you can’t put down. The book talks about economics and the overall concepts of making money while packing in a whole lot of fun. I would recommend this book as the PERFECT book for someone who wants a light and fluffy, super funny book. The main character is Mitch, and when his family moves from San Francisco to a small town in Indiana, Mitch’s life takes a turn for the best. Mitch loves making money and doing business, so he decides to start a football betting ring without checking the rules. Will Mitch’s teachers and parents catch Mitch doing something he shouldn’t?
