My thoughts: 5 stars out of 5

This Junie Jones is hilarious first-grader who reminds my childhood. With all the seriousness of the school business, Juni is afraid to go into the class… What she will find there, she doesn’t know. She even tried to escape, but unsuccessful. Her dad brought her into the class.

With a heart full of fear, she still manages to scan the class until she stops on the familiar face… Lucille, her best friend from the kindergarten was sitting behind the desk. Junie’s heart leaped. She ran to Lucille only to be pushed back with a grave news. Lucille now is a friend to new twin girls, newcomers and with a strange names. Junie tries to be a friend to the new duo, only getting to be pushed back… But the troubles only started. The first day was horrible! Junie couldn’t see what the teacher, Mr.Scary was writing on the board. Then she spend some time at the nurse office to find out that she needs glasses from now on…. What a bummer!

What an day: Junie meets old strangers, new twins, loss of vision, but she finally made a new friend- a boy next to her…

Great AudioBook….There were two discs in the package. One with a story {14-15 tracks} and the second one contained 15 songs for each chapter of the story.
