Staff Reviews


Thanks to my daughter the English teacher, I have been "discovering" some compelling young adult fiction. Both of these books by an award-winning author (Newbery Honor and National Book Award finalist) deal with life in junior high school, with all the inevitable issues of friends, teachers, parents. But even more significant is the compassionate, humorous way Schmidt handles the underlying questions of morality and values. All that and an irresistible and informative dose of Shakespeare and the politics of the 1960's (The Wednesday Wars) and art and Audubon's paintings (Okay for Now). Good-hearted, insightful, and reassuringly well-written.
