The main character in this book is a little boy who never really fits in but he doesn't seem to notice. He has his own way of viewing the world and doing things. His perspective is often so simple it is refreshing.

I absolutely LOVE this book. It captures the life of a special kid and his very special story. Jerry Spinelli is officially one of my new favorite authors. This book should be read by anyone who liked Stargirl, another good read.

This book is for all of the kids who get picked on and don't feel that they fit in. This book is for all of the children who love hearing how a child gets bullied and how that child conquers it. I would advise children as well as adults to read this.
