    One thought on “The Diary of Melanie Martin: or How I Survived Matt the Brat, Michelangelo, and the Leaning Tower of Pizza”

    1. I picked this book for Erin based on other things she's liked and she has read it in one day (it IS an easy read). I started reading mid-stream over her shoulder & then when she put it down, I started from the beginning. It's written as if it's Melanie's diary and it's hysterical, plus it reminds me of some of my own journaling.

    2. I Liked this book a lot because it was funny. I liked seeing the different paintings in the book. I also liked learning about Italy, the foods they served, and the leaning tower of Pisa. I LOVED the Character Matt. He was so cute and really funny!

    3. I read this when I was ten or eleven. I was window shopping with my mom and I wanted to go into this used book store (because I've always loved books) and I sall this and asked my mom to get it for me, even though it wasn't in good condition. I read the book and I fell in love, not only with the book but with Italy. This book inspired me to travel and now after 4 years of looking at the map on my wall, hoping, and my mother and I saving pennies here and there I finally get to go :) thank you Ms. [...]

    4. I really liked this book because it was really funny and entertaining. This book is about Melanie Martin and her adventure in italy. I liked learning about her life and her annoying little brother, who she calls Matt the brat. I also liked learning about Italy. in Italy, Melanie discovers Michelangelo, an Italian artist.

    5. this book was okay I liked this book because of how it is a diary written into a book. My favorite part is when the dad saw his ex girlfriend Sophie when he is on a anniversary with his wife Miranda. So Melanie told Matt that her and dad went out, and he said where. it shows a lot of relationship between her and her brother Matt. she likes him to think he is a brat and she likes to think that, but deep down we all know she loves her little brother. she cared for him when he was lost because she [...]

    6. This was a pretty mediocre middle grades book. It's in diary form and chronicles Melanie's trip through Italy with her family. It has some family positive messages. There is more pseudo-swearing than I usually like in a book intended for this audience, but then again, it's probably a slightly lower reading level than its intended audience so it might be a pick for fourth or fifth grade reluctant or struggling readers rather than as a stretch for younger ones.

    7. for school project: v. sweet. enjoyed the italian references. nice pronunciation guide, a different spin that works for kids, as well as adults.
