Publisher's Summary

Becky is sure that turning ten on the tenth day of the tenth month will be magical. The whole class is invited to her party, including Chad, the cutest boy in the fifth grade. So is Darlenie-the-Meanie. Becky wants to look cute for her party, but all her plans soon go wrong. Really wrong. The magic of turning ten disappears before she even has a chance to blow out her birthday candles. Things get so bad, she refuses to go to her own party. Becky wonders if the Curse of the Double Digits will jinx her forever.

Curse of the Double Digits will make you laugh!

If you could sum up Curse of the Double Digits in three words, what would they be?

Silly<br/>Friendship<br/>Enjoyable

What other book might you compare Curse of the Double Digits to and why?

This book really reminds me of the 'Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good Very Bad Day'.

Have you listened to any of Amanda Terman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Amanda Terman's voice is engaging and clear. I can't wait to listen to other performances by her.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Any additional comments?

This book captures what it feels like to be ten and how ten year olds think. Kids can really relate to it and the narrator brought the characters to life.

A fun story that is great for kids!

Would you listen to Curse of the Double Digits again? Why?

It was a fun, goofy and engaging story to listen to--it turned out to be absolutely perfect for a road trip! A good length, and fun enough to keep everyone alert! Definitely would listen again! The narrator did a superb job balancing lightheartedness necessary for a children's story, dynamic range and emotion suited to the plot, and a well articulated, upbeat tempo.

Captivating

Would you listen to Curse of the Double Digits again? Why?

My 7 year old was intrigued by this story, and I'm sure she'll relate to it even more so as she gets older, so we'll be sure to listen again.

Who was your favorite character and why?

We empathized with and were hoping for things to turn out good for the main character from the beginning and throughout the story.

What does Amanda Terman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Amanda has such a clear, engaging rhetoric that it was a joy to listen.

Any additional comments?

My normally wiggly 7 year old was glued to her seat, listening intently for what will happen next. We talked about the story for the days to come.
