Grade 4-7 By leading readers through a summer in a small town in New York alongside 12-year-old Zachary Athanasius Poulos, Lord gives an intimate view of the boy's 1940 Greek immigrant world, and expands their appreciation of a whole era. Zach's friends half believe that his initials, ZAP, work magic for him, but Zach knows that luck is really the result of careful thinking and honest work. Each chapter, told in the first person, develops new facets of Zach's character: his go-get-'em spunk, his sensitivity to family and friends, his all-American grasp of life at hand. His is a caring family in which the parents set firm expectations and the children assume large responsibilities. By the time the family buys a money-making hot dog stand and moves to Albany, readers sense that Zach, with newly-made friends forming a Z.A.P. club, is ready to take on life in the city and the start of the fall term in a new school.
