In the beginning, Junie copied May's homework and her teacher, Mr. Scary sent a note home. She got in trouble and her parents got angry at her.

In the middle, Junie's best friend Herb, let her cheat on the spelling test. They told on themselves and their parents got mad again.

In the end, they were working in groups writing a poem. Junies group got an A+ on the poem. Junie learned a lesson. The lesson behind the book is don't cheat or lie because the outcome will not be good.

My favorite part was when Junie B. called May a big, fat, pinhead. That was my favorite part because when she said that, they started a fight. The characters in the book were interesting. They were all interesting because they said many funny things. I did not have a favorite. They were all cool. Junie B. has some characteristics like me. She was like me because she is outgoing and funny and so am I.

I would recommend this book to people who enjoy reading funny stories that make you laugh.
