Synopsis: HOW would your life be if you had so much money that it could fill the entire ocean? For Sarawakian Malcolm Mejin, he would travel all around the world in his private jet. He would also own the latest gadgets, the likes of which are so expensive that they could only be afforded by the wealthiest.

It’s such a good fantasy that Malcolm decided to pen it all down in his latest book, Diary of a Rich Kid, whose plot centres on a group of privileged, wealthy kids who lead the most lavish, extravagant lifestyle filled with excitement, suspense and adventure ― peppered with some humour.

Review: Overall, I thought this was a fun read. It read a lot like that old movie Richie Rich crossed with the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. The book was funny and had good character development and world building. I also liked the plot of the story and it was well written.

However, the main character takes a little bit to like initially and a lot of the book focuses on the “issues” of this rich kid, which is unrealistic and unfathomable to a lot of kids, but after that the book was good.

Verdict: I loved it!
