    1. After her mom's dead (that happens in the first book in the series, which I didn't read), Evie comes to live with her uncle Scott. When she is finally adapting to her new life, her father, who she has never seen before, shows up and starts a custody battle. Although Evie is funny, I didn't enjoy the story the whole time. Some moments were great, and in many others the story seems to drag. The plot seemed broken, starting with the custody case, followed by many smaller plots, and coming back to t [...]

    2. I received an advance reading copy of this book via NetGalley. Please know that my review is based on this edition.Second disclaimer: This is the second book in the series, but I never read the first one.It's always nice to read a book written for middle school readers about middle school characters who tackle problems that are engaging without being especially provocative or age-inappropriate. Evie Brooks in Central Park Showdown has its share of family drama, humor, and romance without ever fe [...]

    3. I thought the second appearance of Evie was a fantastic read. It casts New York in a humorous and witty light.It tells the story of an Irish girl, Evie, whose mother dies in the first book, Marooned in Manhattan, and is sent to live with her Uncle Scott. After fending off the hatred of her uncles girlfriend, Leela, right when Evie thinks everything is starting to settle down, her biological father, Michael, who has been out of the picture since before she was born and whom she never met, turns u [...]

    4. "I started school today. And so did the stye in my eye."Evie also has to wear a very short uniform skirt, which shows her "giraffe legs". In spite of these difficulties, she is really enjoying living in New York. She's still her uncle's vet assistant, and his new clients are animals from the Central Park Zoo! Unexpectedly out of nowhere, Evie's biological father appears. At first, no one really takes him seriously, but then he begins to make claims for Evie's custody, to live with him in Austral [...]

    5. I read an advanced reading copy of this and have not read the first in the series. Evie has a distinctive voice. She's funny and stubborn and I can see my younger self really enjoying this. An easy read. I appreciate the inclusive, modern day twists: gay dads, a gay crush, love triangles, an international custody battle, starting at a new school All serious issues but through the eyes of Evie, all lighthearted. I hope that the character development of the others aside from Evie develops more in [...]

    6. My friend's daughter was raving about this book and so I picked it up last Sunday night when I was feeling gloomy and I couldn't put it down. I found Evie's story and Evie irresistible. She's an Irish teenager who lives with her funny and cool uncle Scott, who's a vet living near Central Park in New York. Evie is in the middle of a custody fight between her father who abandoned her and her uncle. That sounds pretty heavy and intense, and there are serious elements in the story but mostly, it's a [...]

    7. Having settled in New York City with her uncle Scott who is a veterinarian, Evie Brooks is slowly making friends and finding her own niche. But when her long-absent father Michael sues for custody, Evie is determined not to leave her new family. Readers will empathize with her conflicted emotions, especially since she just relocated from Ireland, and find her adventures quite amusing and easy to relate to. Her meddling in the romantic affairs of her uncle and her own first steps concerning affai [...]

    8. Copy received through NetGalleyBored? Evie Brooks is always the way to go. You’ll even laugh out loud.I sometimes have a feeling that Mrs. Agnew knows how to make anything interesting. She has such a gift, such an ease when it comes to writing. There were absolutely no dull moments.In Central Park Showdown, we get a chance to witness the trial between Scott and Michael, and Evie’s feeling throughout it, her growing confusion. I loved every minute of it, it was so real and innocent.I’m look [...]

    9. The second, in what I hope will be an ongoing series, of Evie Brooks books, was just as enjoyable as the first. Thirteen year old, Evie has settled into her life in NYC with her Uncle Scott following the death of her mother. Where the drama in the first book resolved, this book is eager to pick right up. There is even a well-played return of the nasty Leela. There is just the right balance of teen life and innocence to make this a book that will be enjoyable to a range of ages.This book was rece [...]

    10. For full review please go to: 5girlsbookreviews, Twitter @camartinez and Facebook "5 Girls Book Reviews"REVIEW BY: Michaela, age 11 years, 8 monthsMAY CONTAIN SPOILER:This book was fantastic! I loved the first book so much and this book is a little different. First, there is a custody case and then a wedding! Overall, it is a wonderful read though and I really enjoyed it! My favorite character is Evie because she is so likable and you get drawn into the book because of her.

    11. I loved following Evie's adventures. This book is a really feel-good uplifting read. it reminded me of my visit to New York. As an Australian, I am hoping that Evie makes a trip to our shores in a future instalment.

    12. 4.5/5. I don't mind the over the top dramatics that happen at times, because this book is fantastic! Thoroughly entertaining, engaging, and heartfelt. Dealing with some tough subjects in a way so many people can relate to. I really hope there will be more in this series.

    13. This book was just as refreshing as the first Evie book. I found myself laughing out loud in some parts, something I haven't done in years. Although I'm well out of the intended age range, I loved it. I don't think it is a book for kids or for adults. It's a book for people.

    14. A great read!! . Evie loves her new home in the big apple. Her dad then comes and her life is one big mess again! Never a dull moment.

    15. Evie is still fun, and the writing is still funny, but I didn't enjoy this quite as much as the first book.
