A fast, fun, friendship read from the Newbery-award winning author of Maniac Magee.
It's the first day of school at Plumstead Middle School and already there's trouble. It starts with Sunny, who is determined to do whatever it will take to get herself suspended. Then there's Eddie, who has a three-point plan for fitting in, but still gets beaten up on the morning bus. Salem is all too pleased to witness Eddie's troubles--as a future famous writer, she's drawn to drama. And on top of it all, there's Pickles Johnson, who is just...well...Pickles.
These four sixth graders have only one thing in common. They're all about to report to the principal's office.

Gr 4-8-- A book written with sparkle, humor, and warmth. It's the first day of school--middle school that is! Changing classes, lockers, P.E., eighth graders, a new high-tech building are among the challenges, and new sixth-graders Eddie Mott, Pickles Johnson, Salem Brownhill, and Sunny Wyler are filled with dread and anticipation. Armed with chutzpah, determination, and the support of a gutsy and lovable principal, they find their way through those first terrible, traumatic, memorable weeks of the fall term. Readers will recognize themselves as these feisty characters meet the challenges and find themselves actually looking forward to the next day of school. Positive and upbeat, this is a chuckle a chapter. --Pamela K. Bomboy, Chesterfield County Public Schools, VA
