There’s a Boy in the Girls’ Bathroom by Louis Sachar

I long ago promised my daughter that I would read anything she had to read for school so that she would have someone to talk to about it. This year I had to follow through with this one.

My girl is finishing 1st grade. This is a 4th grade book. She did fine with the words, but following a longer plot (she’s used to Magic Tree House books) with more emotional action was hard for her. In the end, she declared she didn’t like it, but she did read the whole thing and answer all her questions–mom saw to that.

Me? I loved this book! I think Louis Sachar has a real gift for writing for kids on a level that resonates with adults, too, and I thoroughly enjoyed Bradley’s transformation. A good read for any parent of a difficult child.
