Title: Secrets Of A Schoolyard Millionaire

Author: Nat Amoore

Publisher: Penguin Random House Australia

About the book
This is the tale of a young girl who sets out to be the best business woman ever and to get rich.

With the help of her best friend Toby, Tess sets out on many adventures to hopefully make some money. Only one problem: she’s in grade five.

Then, one day, Tess finds a big bag of money…

Many characters join her in this story: some friends, who help her on her quest, and some foes, who deal in some, well, shady arts.

What I thought
I enjoyed this book. A lot of it was a page-turner and I felt that there was always something good to come. I found the subject quite interesting: how someone so small was always dreaming of something so big, and then something BIG really happened.

I thought the book was written quite well and that kids ages 8+ would be able to understand the story.

I'm a 15-year-old Aussie boy who loves to read. My favourite books include 'Jasper Jones', 'To Kill A Mockingbird' and 'The Lord Of The Rings'. My website contains reviews of books from junior fiction to YA novels and, now, adult reads as well. I only review books I like. My brother writes younger reviews for Book Boy as Book Boy Jr. My book reviews have appeared in The Sunday Telegraph, and on sites such as Children's Books Daily, Creative Kids Tales and Inside A Dog. I am a former member of the #LoveOzYA committee (2018).
