The best way to get even is to get Odd.

Thirteen-year-old Ander Cartwright is an expert on two subjects: fortune cookies and payback.

Especially payback.

When he’s not struggling with algebra, Ander is the leader of an anonymous revenge club that operates within the walls of Marina Middle School. Got a beef with a classmate? Email Ander’s crew and, if your case if legit, they’ll get even on your behalf.

It’s not easy to right wrongs and stay under the radar at the same time. That’s why Ander developed three simple rules designed to help him and his friends from blowing their cover.

But when Ander spots the opportunity to settle an old score of his own, he ignores his own rules, setting off a chain of events that threatens to blow his cover, and it’ll take all the butt-kicking, detention-dodging skill the guys can muster to keep a lid on their secret.
*Thank you Karl for the book*
My Thoughts-

   The Odd Job Squad is about 4 best friends who run an underground revenge business. Their business started when a mean girl was going to far with Shooter(One of the main characters.) After that they continued to get revenge for the underdogs. But when a series of events happens, the best friends secret business starts to unfold and if anyone did find out who was really behind all those pranks; it would be the end for The Odd Job Squad.

 There wasn't anything in the story that I disliked. There's a little bit of romance in there but not enough to make a boy hurl or something and I give Karl props for that. The book is just perfect for both boys and girls.
Another thing I liked about this book was that it wasn't confusing at all.Although it was face paced I found myself never confused. It's defiantly one of those books where when you sit down to read it you get sucked into it because it's a light and fun read.All of the characters were wonderful and I loved them all!

  Like I stated above, this book is just perfect for boys and girls. But I would have to say this is more of a middle school type book instead of YA. I rate this 5 out of 5 stars! It's a fun and easy read so I defiantly recommended to check it out! And don't forget to read my interview with Karl himself!

Happy Reading!
