Ruby Reinvented is a wonderful middle grade novel on so many levels. Arno did a good job of drawing me in with the shocking revelation and the very real relationship dynamics of Ruby confronting her parents. Then I was sold on the complication: her decision to switch schools and then getting herself into a pickle that just snowballs on her. It's a high-interest page-turner with a strong story, delightful characters, and a sense of humor. Really fun and heartfelt, a thoroughly enjoyable read.
