Mind Your Business begins quite innocently with assignments for a seventh-grade class project.The boys in Mr. Brody's class are to conduct business ventures through which they can gain valuable knowledge in mathematics and economics. But things do not go quite as planned. Punctual Menachem and easygoing Chezky, a true odd couple, find themselves reluctant partners in a typing service which produces more problems than profits. Asher and Yoni operate the trickiest shlepping service in town. Noach and Shlomo contend for the nosh business with some fierce, old-fashioned competition. Meanwhile, poor Sruly is trying desperately to peddle his pencils, but only his mother is buying. Then, just as things seem to be falling into place, a missing science test and some serious ethical questions create unexpected new complications. But in the end, the project is successfully completed and the results teach the class more about right and wrong and human relations than about mathematics and economics! M.C. Millman is the author of Too Tough to Care for younger readers and is also writing the popular series The Adventures of the Cheery Bim Bam. Currently in preparation by the author are Mastermind, a full-length novel for young adults, and Is Anyone Watching?, a picture book for young children.
