We have had an overwhelming response from teachers and librarians over the popularity of this book.  Here’s why teachers and students like the book.  It’s a fast-paced story about a boy (Tyler McAllister) struggling to fit into a new school, trying to overcome the death of his father, dealing with embarrassing attacks of asthma and allergies, and dodging the school bully.  In the midst of this turmoil is a murder mystery that Tyler is determined to solve after he accidentally finds a dead body.  But what really makes this book appealing to kids is that the dialogue reflects the way kids talk and it’s an easy, short read.   What more could a kid ask for?  

THE TROUBLE WITH LEMONS is the winner of the American Library Association Best Book for Young Adults and an International Reading Association Young Adults’ Choice award winner.  A great selection for reluctant readers.  Free Teacher’s Guide is available.

And if you like this book, look for more adventures with Tyler, and his sidekick Lymie, in EYE OF THE BEHOLDER.
