I'm Going to Be Famous Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of I'm Going to Be Famous

Banana-lover Arlo Moore is going to be famous. How? By devouring seventeen bananas in less than two minutes and becoming the new banana-eating champion of The Guinness Book of World Records! And he's not alone. His best friend Ben wants to set a record for lemon-eating while Arlo's sister Kerry and her friend Mike decide to break records for melon-seed spitting and ice cream-eating. As the kids train obsessively for their record-making attempts, parents worry about their health, bullies sabotage their training sessions, and the entire school bets on their success -- or failure. Will the kids break their records?
