Fish in a Tree - Lynda Mullaly Hunt

Sharp, perceptive, and gifted in other ways, Ally successfully hides her inability to read—often by misbehaving. After seven schools in seven years, Ally forms an alliance and friendship with two other misfits; and, finally, a substitute teacher sees beyond her calculated obstinance. With the wisdom of Einstein’s words, the teacher reminds Ally that a Fish in a Tree (Nancy Paulsen, $16.99) should not be judged on its ability to climb. Lynda Mullaly Hunt’s compassionate story of triumph over adversity portrays the many challenges of middle school with memorable characters that will live in your heart long after the last page. Ages 10-12. Mary Alice Garber
