Wow!

Younger kids will probably not get the meaning of this book. How even stretching or not telling the whole truth can have devestating consequences. It's also a book about accepting responsibility for your own actions. I really enjoyed this book. I think it is a must read for middle school and up students. A good reminder for adults, too!

Avi gets me thinking

Just spent an hour on a panel discussing this book. Avi was present and the 7th and 8th graders in attendance really understood the characters and their challenges. We discussed how there are many views of the "truth". Many were upset at the treatment of Ms. Narwin although Avi said the students usually side with Phillip.
