Redheaded Stepchild (Paperback)
Nicholas is a twelve-year-old with red hair whose dad just remarried. His new stepmom is a chain-smoking, ex-Jehovah's Witness. Tomorrow at lunch, the biggest boy in grade six plans to beat him up--he even made a Facebook event. Should Nicholas skip school, even if it means missing the chance to audition for the class play and impress his English teacher?
