“Go Big or Go Home” is not exactly a literary masterpiece. The plot is almost ridiculous, like something out of a bad comic. But younger readers are sure to thrill over the crazy stunts, surprising turns, and silly humor that “Go Big or Go Home” has to offer. Personally, I enjoyed reading Will Hobbs historical adventures much more than this junior fiction novel. However, its obvious that Will Hobbs is trying to expand his reader base by writing for a broader audience.
To summarize, “Go Big or Go Home” is a book that may be enjoyed by readers in the young tween group, but its nothing special to an older audience.
