SIX KIDS AND A STUFFED CAT
New York : Simon & Schuster Books, 2016
IL 3-6, RL 6.0
Six 8th grade boys are stuck in the boys' room during a weather lock down. Five of the boys have known each other for years but have not really taken the time to find out what makes each other tick. There is the class clown who spends many afternoons in detention; the hostile one; the brainy one, the big man on campus; the spaced out rocker dude and there is also the new kid who has just slept through his first day at the school. As the time passes during the lock down, the boys talk and find out much about each other.
