Beka's thoughts: When I saw the book Janitors, I knew it was a book I wanted to read. It is about a twelve year old kid named Spencer, who washed his face with a special soap and suddenly was able to see small creatures dwelling within the walls of his school. With the help of a girl named Daisy- nick named Gullible Gates- Spencer has to find out who are the bad guys, and how to save the school, and possibly the entire world from the smarts-sucking school dwelling creatures.
I really enjoyed the book, the style of writing was fun and creative, and the story was enticing and cute. It is more of a fourth to fifth grader book, but can be read by anyone who wants their imagination to be expounded, and their minds enlightened.
