This book is about a girl named Lucy whose teacher assigns them to write in a journal. Lucy tells her teacher everything in her journal. Andy the class-trouble maker has a secret that he is hiding from everyone and confides in Lucy.
"The journals move the plot along quickly and express a wide range of emotions. The entries adeptly show how the characters grow emotionally as well as artistically, the writings and situations are realistic and believeable." -School Library Journal
FROM THE PUBLISHER
The entries in the journals of two sixth grade students reveal much about their personal feelings, family lives, and a growing interest in poetry sparked by their new substitute teacher.
My 10 year old dd read this and enjoyed it. It is an Accelerated Reader book also in our area.
