Rated 3 out of 5 by from Spin the Golden Light Bulb I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This wasn't a bad book, it just wasn't for me. Kia was so childish and wanted things to go her way. But she is a child so how else was she supposed to act? The other kids acted really childish too, which was to be expected of course. I still found it annoying. Then there where all these random Natch Cheese ball tournaments. What was the point of those? They where just filler to make the story longer imo. The most interesting part of the whole book was reading about some of the inventions kids created. Its not the sort of middle grade book that all ages would enjoy or love. It is decidedly middle grade.
