Top. I requested that Audible carry this, and am so grateful to find that this year, it is on the list!
The theme of friendship and Van Draanen's layered, multidimensional take on this theme. Humor helps!
Annunciation and animation in his voice provides a different "take" on the story.
Yes. I do not wish to spoil it, but I read this book in one day. I couldn't put it down!
Remind your students or children that it is important not to spoil it for others by telling them what happens.
