Review: Smek for President

Smek for President - Adam Rex

Follow up to True Meaning of Smekday, clearly penned after the movie deal as it includes a joke about that movie. The biggest difference between Home and TMoS isn't plot, but target audience age. This book feels like an attempt to split the difference. Plot wise a sequel to the book, but reads like it is intended for the age range of the film audience.

 

Still quite a fun read, but never quite as sharp or funny as the first book.
