If a Tree Falls at Lunch Period by Gennifer Choldenko
Timely. Sensitive. Amazing.
All describe If a Tree Falls at Lunch Period by Gennifer Choldenko.
I love this author (of Al Capone Does My Homework, etc.) and how she handles the subject of race, bullying and family in this book.
The chapters are short, which makes this an easy book for non-readers to get through. And the story makes it hard for readers to put down.
Highly recommended for ages 11 or 12 and up. A great choice for a middle-school or parent-student book club.
