New York : Aladdin, 2017
IL 3-6, RL 5.2
It is another last day at school for Ross. And it needs to be epic. Ross and his mom move a lot because of her job. She is in a touring orchestra and only spends a short time in each stop. So Ross is used to be the new kid. And he has had too many last days where he gathers his belongings and heads to the front of the class to say goodbye to kids he doesn't really know. A few moves ago, he accidentally knocked over two desks full of papers and they went flying. It was epic. Everyone will remember that one. So now when he leaves, he plans an epic exit strategy. The kids love it but not the teachers. So, now a new school. This feels different though. It is not for a new job. This time they are moving in to help his grandfather who has had an accident. Now there is no idea when it will be over. And Ross faces the fact that he might just have to try to fit in.
