The Last Great Adventure of the PB&J Society

CapstoneISBN: 978-16237063642016

Some things are better together. Like peanut butter and jelly. Or Annie and Jason. So when her best friend’s house is threatened with foreclosure, Annie Jenkins is bursting with ideas to save Jason’s home. She could sell her appendix on eBay. (Why not?) Win the lottery. (It’s worth a shot!). Face the evil bankers herself. (She’s one tough cookie, after all.) Or hung down an elusive (and questionably real) pirate treasure. Whatever the plan, it has to work, or this is undoubtedly THE LAST GREAT ADVENTURE OF THE PB&J SOCIETY.

Praise for The Last Great Adventure of the PB&J Society

Annie narrates with spunk and style, and her do-or-die attitude moves the plot along at a nice clip. . . .heartwarming…and readers looking for a sweet story of neighborly goodwill may leave satisfied. ~Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

The plot and the character arcs are realistic and fully realized. Readers will get caught up in Annie’s funny, desperate quest to save Jason’s house but will also relate to the disappointment she feels when she messes up. This is an insightful depiction of two kids wanting what is best for their friendship in a post-recession economy. A general purchase for most middle grade collections, especially in communities that are still feeling ripple effects from the 2008 recession. ~School Library Journal

This charming novel, with a friendship reminiscent of Phyllis Reynolds Naylor’s Faith, Hope and Ivy June (2009), will delight readers. Subtly exploring themes of social class, sacrifice, and compassion, Annie and Jason’s adventure is a satisfying treat. ~Booklist
