    Interesting, humorous, but not the best., June 14, 2003 Reviewer: Leanna Wiley from Kansas, USA SUMMER OF THE DRAGON was a good book. It had the humor to keep u giggling at even intervals. The frustration to keep u turning the pages to found out what Hank Hunnicut's big find was. The action and suspense to make u hold your breath and gasp frequently. Over-all it was a good book. Though, it wasn't up to Peters' standards. The narrative seemed a little flippant at the beginning, but as Peters gained confidence (i guess) it became more and more bold. At times, i was waiting for the herione (D.J. Abbot) to say "Another shirt ruined!!" I can see how this book came before our revered Amelia, there are things that happen to be similiar, as well as the physical description of Tom De Karsky. D.J. is a unique heroine, one that actually ate something and wasnt petite and well, girly. She had a mind of her own, and voiced her opinion when and not when asked. About the characters, they were amusing and helped to further the plot, but they werent well-deveolped. Physical descriptions were great (except for D.J. i can only remember her heigth) but the general personality of Tom, Hank, Jesse, The Stockwells, wasnt believable. If u want to read something over the summer that is light and funny, w/ suspense, mystery, and action... then by all means this book is for u. I read it in one sitting. IT WAS GOOD!! but not the best
