Fish in a tree by Lynda Mullaly Hunt. Available on the cloud library in e-book and audio book.
Daughter of a military father, sixth grader Ally has moved around alot. She is in a new town almost every year and without any consistency in her education no one has yet to pick up on her struggle to read. Enter new teacher Mr. Daniels who begins to notice Ally, seeing something her others had missed. Through her sixth grade journey, with the help of an understanding teacher and some new ‘misfit’ friends, Ally begins to feel more confident and better about herself. I listened to the audio version of this book and I wish I had read it, I found the narrator’s voice to be whiny and irritating, It also seemed to be somewhat predictable, with all the usual school cliques accounted for. But if you are missing school, and your favorite teacher, this book may take you back there.
Two and a half stars.
