Diary Of A 6th Grade Ninja by Marcus Emerson
My name is Chase Cooper, and I’m a 6th grade ninja. It’s my first day at a different school and the only person I know is my cousin, Zoe (but she might be a little too cool for me). I was just another scrawny kid until a group of ninjas recruited me into their clan. It was a world of trouble I wasn’t prepared for, which is why I kept this diary (or “chronicle” as my dad would call it) – to warn other kids about the dangers of becoming a ninja. They say history is destined to repeat itself… well, not if I can help it.
I found this to be a slightly amusing story. The main characters, Chase and Zoe were likeable enough, and some of the situations they both found themselves in felt very real. Chase is new to the school, and his cousin Zoe helps him to make friends and find his way through the adjustment of starting at a new school. But when Chase falls in with the wrong crowd, things get murky and the question of morality comes into play.
This is a relatively short book, and I did find most of the plot to be fairly predictable. But nevertheless, I enjoyed reading it and loved the way it ended. I liked the way that Chase was forced to choose between his new friends or doing the right thing.
Diary Of A 6th Grade Ninja is funny and lighthearted, while also asking some harder decisions that both the characters and the readers have to make. I liked the flow of the writing, and the quirkiness of Chase’s personality, and will most probably read more of Marcus Emerson’s books in the future.
