Meet Greg Kenton, Billionaire In the Making Greg Kenton has two obsessions-making money and his long-standing competition with his annoying neighbor, Maura Shaw. So when Greg discovers that Maura is cutting into his booming Chunky comics business with her own original ilustrated minibooks, he's ready to declare war. The problem is, Greg has to admit that Maura's books are good, and soon the longtime enemies become unlikely business partners. But their budding partnership is threatened when the principal bans the sale of their comics in school. Suddenly, the two former rivals find themselves united against an adversary tougher than they ever were to each other. Will their enterprise-and their friendship-prevail?

      I like this book because it always made my emotions change. Whenever Greg's business opponent is able to make money, it makes me mad.

        The story is about a boy making money out of anything, by working and also tries to make money in school. Greg boy is called Greg, and the girl is called Maura. Greg always fight with Maura and Greg is trying to make money, he wants to be rich. They tried to sell their comic books, in school, but the school stop them from selling them. Greg is my favorite character, because I think he is brave on making money, and being smart on making money, think of a way to make money even the school stop from selling them. I like the book because, it was full with happiness and they worked together too make money together, even they fight each other.

                    this book is about a boy named Greg Kenton that wants to make money. Greg wants to sell things at school but the principal banned him from selling things. Also, there is a really annoying girl named Maura that always copies Greg with his ideas.
