An accurate intro to The National School SCRABBLE Competition
In this realistic fiction novel, several teams of middle school students are preparing to compete in The National School SCRABBLE Competition. Each team has a unique background that drives them to creative solutions throughout the story. The author deals with issues such as bullying, long-lost-friends, one parent families, and blended families. Woven throughout the text are guides to playing competition SCRABBBLE. I use this book as a read-aloud and it is always accessed with an applause at the end of the book!
