Read this before you are out of junior high!

Middle school and junior high students should love this book. I read it to my students every year and they are spellbound throughout. I've noticed many have improved their own writing as they pick up on the author's style. Schmidt does a great job of referencing Shakespear and atheletics.

A great "growing up" story

The author does a great job in creating the time period and being true to the life of a seventh grader. I just love how grows in maturity and with his relationship with his teacher. It had to be scary knowing you were going to spend one-on-one time with your seventh grade teacher. While some behavior is not great the warm feeling overcome that.
