THE SUMMER WE SAVED THE BEES, by Robin Stevenson

Bees

The story: When Wolf’s hippie parents drag the family on a summer-long trip across Canada to educate the world about the perils of worldwide bee death, he’s pretty bummed. He’s leaving all his friends behind, his mom’s making him wear a dorky bee costume, and he feels like they’re homeless. But when his older sister runs away and his younger sister stops talking completely, Wolf realizes he’s going to have to do the hardest thing of all: stand up for himself.

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: Here’s a fun story about Wolf, a 7th-grade boy who gets better and better at figuring out what’s important to him, and making his voice heard about it.
