    Really cute book--a quick, fun read about a tween who lives at the zoo with her twin brother and the rest of her family. The animal facts that are thrown in are fun and fascinating, and Ana is a likeable, fallible hero in all the right ways. I'd put it at the end of middle grade (o...

    MY THOUGHTS Ana Wright lives in a zoo with her family and her life pretty much revovles around creatures, great and small. She was put on the spot and did a presentation on reptiles that went viral during the school year and now that is summer, she wants nothing more to do than hang...

    I really enjoyed this book. Fans of Ana's first adventure will be glad to see her in action again. They may not be so pleased to hear that her arch-enemy, Ashley, will be spending the summer as a volunteer at the zoo and Ana gets stuck working with her. It almost seems unfair. Ana had ...

    In this sequel to How to Outrun a Crocodile When Your Shoes Are Untied, Ana has a few things to worry about. It's summer, and she's going to be giving presentations for her grandfather about the new shark exhibit at the zoo. That's nerve wracking enough, but she has to work with a new ...

    This review (and others) can be seen in all its proper formatting glory on my blog Beauty and the Bookshelf. Last year, I read and adored the adorkableness that was Keating's first novel. How to Outrun a Crocodile When Your Shoes Are Untied was such fun, and it also happened to be o...

    Surviving seventh grade with your dignity and inconspicuousness intact is no easy feat. Sometimes you get to keep one but not the other. If you have new friendships in place, it's all for the good. With the months of June, July and August acting as a buffer to the upcoming final year o...

    I loved meeting Ana in Jess Keating's first book. Ana is back, and with her are more middle grade problems. Ana has one of the best middle grade female voices I've come across in awhile. She's witty, smart and kind. This second story had me rooting for Ana even more- she got a little ...

    Last year, Jess Keating?s How To Outrun A Crocodile With Your Shoes Untied charmed me completely with its wacky setting, lovable heroine, and sparkling storytelling. Well Keating returns to Ana Wright?s animal filled world in the wildly funny and sweetly adorkable sequel, How To Ou...

    How To Outswim A Shark Without A Snorkel reminded me of why the younger me fostered a love of books and reading. I remember the days that I would prefer to cuddle with an intelligent book, rather than play ?house? outside with my much younger cousins (oh, don?t worry, I still spe...

    I wish that Ana had been around when I went through that awkward stage in my tweens...it brought back some amusing and weird memories. It's hard to figure out your place on this planet, but Ana's going to be okay. ...

    ARC from Netgalley I loved how this book weaved fact and humor at the beginning of each chapter. It was spot on with the voice of the quirky, intelligent, self-conscience middle-school protagonist, Ana. Can't wait to put this one in the hands of some of my kids! ...

    A super huge thanks to Net Galley and Sourcebooks for allowing me to read this book! YOU GUYS ROCK!!! Jess Keating does it again! I cannot say enough about how much I enjoy her books. First of all, it is very refreshing to read a book for girls that is clean and a little more innoce...

    Summer is just not turning out at all like Ana had pictured. First off, Liv decides that they need to finish their kiss pact this summer because the powers that be in New Zealand are putting her in high school instead of 8th grade when school starts. Ana thought she had a whole year to...

    Loved this one! I think the lessons were great, and very relatable, especially in the shark-infested middle school social pool. I have a 7th grader and she loved the book as well! ...

    I want to be able to give ratings in half-star increments on GoodReads, because I'd give this 4.5 stars. This book was a really good follow-up to the first in the series (How to Outrun A Crocodile When Your Shoes are Untied). I loved getting to follow Ana's story farther, and almost...

    I didn't even know this book was a sequel until a few days ago when I checked the Goodreads tab for this book, which goes to show it can definitely stand on it's own. The characters stand out individually, and I was able to grasp them all even though I haven't read the first book in th...

    Ana continues absolutely hilarious and relatable. Poor, poor, Ana. She has to work in a shark tank with her arch-nemesis, Ashley. Her best friend Liv moved away, and has seemingly replaced her. Liv will be starting high school this year, which is one year ahead of Ana, because of the e...
