From the Files of Madison Finn Book Series by Laura Dower

These books are kinda funny and most of the characters are pretty like able. Madison spends a lot of time online but the books always talk about proper internet safety. They have lots of internet lingo which isn't my favorite thing in the world, but some people like it. The books also skip around a little bit in time sequence, so they don't need to be read in order. They also deal a lot with the issue of divorce from a kids perspective. Content - The only swearing in the books is the gword which isn't used very much in the books, but it is still there. All in all not a bad series.
