Roxie and the Hooligans by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor
Roxie is a 9 year old girl. Her Uncle Dangerfoot is an explorer and his partner is the famous Lord Thistlebottom. Roxie memorized Lord Thistlebottom's book called "Lord Thistlebottom's Book of Pitfalls and How to Survive Them". There are a bunch of bullies at her school called Helvetica's Hooligans. Roxie falls into a dumpster with the Hooligans and it's dumped into the sea. The girls swim to an island with two robbers on it. Roxie remembers from the book how to survive all the things that happen on the island throughout the book.
This book was short, but was pretty good. I liked that Roxie stands up for herself. Whenever the Hooligans wouldn't do something, Roxie would stand up and say that she would do it by herself. I would recommend the book. It's really fast to read.
