FISH IN A TREE, by Linda Mullaly Hunt

fish

The story: To Ally, reading has always been a chore as heavy as dragging a cement block by a chain around her neck. She’s felt that because it was so easy for others, it must prove she’s dumb. She isolates herself, drawing in her notebook of Impossible Things, until a new teacher figures out her problem (dyslexia). Will Ally be able to figure out how to make those letters stop jumping around, how to make the mean kids stop being SO mean, and how to make friends for the very first time?

Mrs. Friend’s opinion:  If you like a story about a smart kid overcoming real hardships, take a look at this one.
