The F.L.U.B. Club: How the 'Future Fixer' Fixed My Future and Flubbed It Up Again by Richard Clark is an intriguing story that follows a boy named Marty. Marty and his friends created a club that Marty called the F.L.U.B. club, one that deals with coding, however people thought it was flub club, and the nickname stuck. Marty comes up with an idea for an app that could tell you your mood. He stays up all night making it, and in the morning, he and his friends test the app. The app seems to work, but then it went to static. Then suddenly a five-second clip shows through the static. They learn that the app shows the future. But is the five-second clip always accurate?

I really enjoyed reading The F.L.U.B. Club by Richard Clark. The book has many funny parts that made me laugh out loud. I liked how the book is written from Marty's point of view, because his point of view is really funny. The book is very modern, because it involves apps and coding. The characters are all very likeable, because they are smart and kind. I was hooked by the first page, and I didn't want to put the book down. The book was so good that I was sad to reach the end. The book is really fun to read, because it has comedy, action, and suspense. It's a real page-turner and will leave the reader wanting to know more. The book is very well written and descriptive, interesting and exciting. I would recommend this book to young and young adult readers.

What can I say about The F.L.U.B Club, well first the way the book is written is easy to follow. The main character feel like real life friends. The author it seems has taken into account what your friends would do in RL. You see in one part of the book the main character friends come in just at the wrong time and cause the main character to embarrass himself.

The way the plot unfolds is really funny and I can see any young reader wanting more books about the F.L.U.B Club. You can tell that the Author knows how children think as the book is geared towards young children and I would recommend this book for any child that wants a quick and easy read.
