Could you spend $5 million in a month? Sounds like fun, but what if you are prohibited from donating to charity, investing in assets, and giving gifts? That makes it a whole lot more challenging. Can two 12-year-old boys win the challenge and earn $10 million each? They sure do find some creative ways to spend the money. That's for sure. Will the experience bond make Benji and Felix best friends, or will the money eventually drive them apart? As a parent what was hardest for me was to watch these boys look like a couple of spoiled rich brats and not be able to go to their own parents for advice. Not a good prescription for family togetherness. On the other hand, some of the best books in middle grade fiction show what kids can do when they are not micromanaged. So, I do think kids will be entertained when reading this book. There are some intriguing financial equations included at the end.
