Seven Children. Seven Stories.
Life at Flint Hill Elementary School may seem normal, but seven friends soon find themselves on a path to crack the code for an epic life.  Whether they’re chasing their dreams on stage, searching for an elusive monster fish, or running a makeshift business out of a tree house, can these heroes find a way to work together to change their community?

The 411:

We loved each story. All 7 characters are likable. Your child will relate to at least one of them. My kids are reluctant readers and we read this one together. Each story presents a story and ends with a solution. My Goddess loved Oh Rats most which which is about Alec who never cleans his room. His parents decide they will let it go until he does it himself but he knows his mom won't be able to let it go for long. He is so confident that he even tosses a banana peel on the floor knowing he will get to it. He is surprised when he comes home from school and the peel is still there. Eventually a movement at school is started and all the other kids decide they also will not clean. Solidarity wins until Public Health Notices go up around the neighborhood. Who will the winner be in this stalemate? You will have to read and find out who.  

My Handsome loved The Monster about a father and son who head out to find The Monster that his father swears he saw while fishing. Talmage and his dad don't see it and there is zero proof it even existed. Dad just wants someone to believe him. Talmage seeing the sadness in his dad's eyes decides to calculate and take notes about lures, location, weather and more to determine the best time to find the Monster.  Will hist determination pay off? Read and find out.

Each story has an important message and in the end all the students are included in a very important community program to help animals. It is a brilliant way of story telling and I cannot wait to read more from this author.
