    It isn't that Abby Carson can't do her schoolwork, it's just that she doesn't like doing it. And that means she's pretty much failing sixth grade. When a warning letter is sent home, Abby realizes that all her slacking off could cause her to be held back -- for real! Unless she wants to repeat the sixth grade, she'll have to meet some specific conditions, including taking on an extra-credit project: find a pen pal in a foreign country. Simple enough (even for a girl who hates homework).

    John J Gershman says: "Another great book by Clements"

    Overall

    My girls (7 and 9) "loved this book very, very much." (A direct quote). Clements' books are favorites in our household and this one is particularly good..incorporates contemporary issues regarding Afghanistan well, it provides the basis for talking about how we are not reflective about our own situations and surroundings until someone else points out the beauty and distinctivenes that we take for granted.
