Middle School Millionaires by Roderick J Robison is the story of Kirk and Tommy who are allowed to keep their recycling barrels in the school. The thirteen-year-olds intend only to make some pocket money but their business takes off. Trouble starts when the principal of the school feel that they are indulging in something fishy and tries to find out what they are up to.
The book is both interesting and adventurous -- the boys find themselves at the receiving end of a lot of orders for their recycling barrels. I thought the author kept up the pace of the story. There is never a dull moment. The ups and downs they face while doing this business is relatable. Kirk and Tommy stay in the readers' minds even after you finish reading. Their excitement and eagerness to make some pocket money is really appealing. It is something that all teens can relate to.
The characters are well-rounded and the book is descriptive. Depositing half their earnings into the thrift shop donation box is one part of the book which really appealed to me. The school principal suspecting some trouble is another twist the story takes. Will the principal take back his detention? Will Kirk and Tommy become real Middle School Millionaires?
