Even though THE DAREDEVILS is not a fantasy, it is still a magical story of summer and growing up.

Although not a fantasy, The Daredevils is a story filled with magic. Told from the dual points of view of Loretta and Waylon, readers are privy to the thoughts and feelings of these two precocious and adorable pre-teens. Loretta is a bright, savvy, strong, capable “older” sister who loves her brother and wants to do the best for him. Her chapters are witty while revealing she’s still young and vulnerable herself. Waylon is beyond smart and very creative, and he loves his sister. He’s quirky but not as helpless as his sister seems to want to think.

Their summer of adventure is one of achieving their personal goals and accomplishing their quest while avoiding people that make their lives difficult. The story is an entertaining and engaging one that both boys and girls will enjoy. Many smile-inducing moments and a couple of heart-wrenching turns of events will keep readers turning the pages to see what happens next.

With its likable and relatable characters and inventive storyline, THE DAREDEVILS is tremendous fun and a worthwhile chapter book for upper elementary and middle-grade readers. It would work well as a read-aloud book as well.

I voluntarily reviewed this after receiving an Advanced Review Copy from the author or publisher through TBR and Beyond.

This is a lovely story about one extraordinary teacher told from the perspective of a few of his classmates. Mr. Terupt is a great teacher although he may have given a little too much responsibility to his students and not stepped in when he should've. Although to be honest part of what made him so special was that he allowed his students to become more independent. The kids in his class were awesome!. The dynamics between the kids was awesome. There is Peter the jokester, Lexie the drama queen, Luke the smart kid, Anna the shy quiet girl, Jessica the nice new girl and other characters as well. I really appreciate the incorporation of special need kids in this book which in my opinion is very well done. I read this book as a kid and rereading it was such a nostalgic experience.
I Highly recommend this wonderful book to upper elementary kids, kids in middle school and even older readers looking for a good middle-grade book
