Publisher's Summary

The Vanderbeekers have always lived in the brownstone on 141st Street. It's practically a member of the family. So when their reclusive, curmudgeonly landlord decides not to renew their lease, the five siblings have 11 days to do whatever it takes to stay in their beloved home and convince the dreaded landlord just how wonderful they are...and all is fair in love and war when it comes to keeping their home.

Great book! I would read it aloud instead...

This is an awesome story and a great read aloud for Christmas, but this performance is not good. The narrator doesn't read the dialogue well at all. They don't sound like real people. Speeding up to 1.10 was a significant improvement.

Enjoyable read with heartwarming ending

I loved how the author developed the characters in this book. From the youngest child to each of the neighbors, each one was distinctly writing and fleshed out. I liked that the children weren't dumbed down. The ending was very touching and heartwarming.

Can you say AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh my goodness!!!!!!!!
I loved every bit of it!!!!!
I got a concussion a few days ago and this was not only the best book ever, this did amazing things for my head, and I am only10! When my mom found this for me, I wasn’t that interested with it. But when I neared the end of the book, I was in love. I did not want it to end. Thank you so much Miss.Robin Miles and Miss.Karina Glaser.
