READING IS NEVER EASY
Travis is new to the middle school, new to the area and not happy at all. When he meets outspoken, Velveeta, a classmate, things begin to look up until he has to read out loud in class. He feels like a Bluefish all over again.
Bluefish by Pat Schmatz is a hopeful story of new friendships and hidden secrets. A realistic look at how middle schoolers deal with death, alcoholism, parents, neglect, bullying, and school. For mature readers in 6 grade and up.
