Our Teen Reviewer says: This book does a good job of portraying Arthur's life and challenges. I enjoyed this book a lot. I liked the way it was written, the specific phrasing of the dialogue between the characters. Using the school flyers in the book is done creatively. and I think it'd be a perfect book for the age it is marketed for: middle school.

Pros: The story is one preteens and teens will relate to. The writing is really well done. The presentation of different formats (emails, school flyers) is creative and fun.

Arthur is starting 7th grade and is having a hard time. His mom died at the end of the last school year and there are a lot of things he's still figuring out. Also, he's madly in love with the most beautiful girl in school and his English teacher has asked him to keep a reading journal and tutor his nemesis. There's a strong voice for each of the characters so this would be a great mentor text for author's voice. ( )
