Up and Down the River

Our rating: ****½

Debbie and Bonnie Fairchild want to get rich this summer. The two girls find some advertisements from companies wanting people to sell their products. The girls will make one dollar each and, in their minds, they will be rich.

Up and Down the River is a wonderfully simple story. It is part of a series, but it can easily be understood on its own. Bonnie and Debbie end up making a lot more than two dollars, though not in the sense of money. Overall, this is a very enjoyable and worthwhile read.
