Sharon G. Flake is one of my favorite authors so far. I only read one of her books and it was awesome. Well no one told me to read it, but the author kind of did, because while I read the back of the book, it sounded interesting. So, if you like fun books and if your favorite genre is realistic fiction then I guess you should read this book.

Well when I finished reading this book I thought this book has a theme that is general. Its theme is to be educated to finish collage, find a job and live better. The book has a great general message especially the theme is for students, because the students are the one that are educated and have a chance to find a job to live better.

In conclusion, Money Hungry by Sharon G. Flake is a great book. Even if, Raspberry’s, life changes after her mom and dad divorces she won’t give up until she finds a place where she and her mom can live in peace. Money Hungry is a great book that I recommend you to read. So, go ahead and start reading the book.
