THE CLASSROOM : EPIC DOCUMENTARY OF A NOT-YET-EPIC KID
New York : Hyperion, 2012
IL 3-6, RL 5.3
Trevor has been gearing up all summer for this year. Seventh grade is going to be great. Or is it? On day one, his best friend Libby tells him that he needs to make other friends. And ask someone to the dance!! What? Libby tells him about being cool in 7th grade. Trevor is not so sure about this. And to make matters worse, a film crew has arrived at the school to shoot a documentary about a typical seventh grader and guess who they have in mind.
