“A complex, thought-provoking, and entertaining view of middle school.” –Publishers WeeklyTwenty kids. Twenty points of view. One rambunctious, brilliantly conceived novel that corrals the seeming chaos (c’mon, TWENTY points of view!) into one effervescent story.Sixth grade is a MOST confusing time. Best friends aren’t friends anymore. Worst enemies suddenly want to be partners in crime. And classmates you thought you knew have all sorts of surprising stuff going on. The kids in Mrs. Herrera’s class are dealing with all this and more–specifically:1. There’s a new girl who just seems to be spying on them all and scribbling things in a notebook. Maybe she IS a spy?2. Someone is stealing Mrs. Herrera’s most treasured items.3. Their old classmate, Sam, keeps showing up and no one knows why…until they do.Which leads to a fourth problem. But we can’t tell you about that yet. The twenty kids in Mrs. Herrera’s classroom can, though, and they do.Every. Single. One. Of. Them.
