The One and Only Stuey Lewis
I read The One and Only Stuey Lewis by Jane Schoenberg in about an hour last night.
I really liked Stuey Lewis. He was a realistic character - not yet a reader but still very creative and smart. His Halloween caper idea was brilliant. I wish I'd thought of it as a child!
As for Joliet Reads... I think the kids would really enjoy it. Would the district's teachers mind that his brother calls him "Stu-pid" when their mom is not around? The brother also called him "Jerk" one time, but gets in trouble for it.
I strongly recommend that all selection committee members read this book. I will be returning my copy within the next five minutes. :-D
