Slumber Party Payback

Slumber Party Payback Derrick Barnes

Ruby's brother Ro is known as a joker, and his pranks ruined Ruby's last slumber party. He ruined it so totally that no one will come to her party this time except for Ruby's very best friends. When Ro continues to pull his stunts, Ruby and her friends decide that it's time her brother got a taste of his own medicine.

So, we've seen some of Ro's pranks in previous books and they're fairly destructive (like vandalizing all the school posters or breaking Ty's computer so he couldn't use it study animal trivia). The pranks he pulls on Ruby's friends though... it's just mean and I'm wondering how his parents let him get away with it. Soaking all of your little sister's stuffed animals in vinegar isn't funny, it's just mean.

I was also surprised because while Ro likes to make trouble, in the previous books, he was a pretty good big brother and didn't seem like the kind of guy who would think it was hilarious that none of Ruby's friends will come to her parties anymore because of him.

That said, this was my favorite of the series so far. It's pretty hilarious. It's a wonderful version of the typical sleep-over pranks and the revenge of younger sisters.
