This six-book series centers around two 23rd century goofballs, Tuna and Herby, who travel back in time to study TJ Finkelstein for their history project. TJ will someday become a great leader who demonstrates honesty, integrity, thoughtfulness, self-sacrifice, respect for others—all traits she hones and grasps through her adventures in this series. Unfortunately, Tuna and Herby get stuck in TJ’s time (modern day), so she has to deal with their schemes while juggling the normal issues of a seventh grader who has moved to a new city, is trying to fit in, and is coping with her mother’s death and her family’s new life.
In AAAARGH!!!, Tuna and Herby try to help TJ with a book report by getting the author to write it for her, but all three of them quickly see the consequences of cheating spiral out of control. Meanwhile, TJ’s cute neighbor and classmate Chad Steel is getting ready for a big surfing competition—and learning his own lesson about honesty.
TJ is behind in her studies, has become friends with two very unpopular kids, and all her plans are falling apart. Everyone thinks she's crazy. TJ has invisible friends from another century following her around and causing trouble everywhere!
This is a cute book, funny storyline but also teaches important lessons such as honesty. You see, TJ is cheating on a book report and it's not a big deal to her.
Funny book. Highly recommended for kids of all ages! I give it 5 of 5 stars.
