THE LOONEY EXPERIMENT, by Luke Reynolds

Looney - Copy

The story: Seems like Atticus’s life couldn’t get much worse: he’s routinely bullied by Danny Mills, his father has just left the family, and he’s got the worst name in the world. But when Mr. Looney, a 77-year-old substitute teacher, appears in ILA class, things subtly begin to change. Atticus begins to gain the courage he’ll need to stand up for Mr. Looney when things get really, really bad.

 

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: If you like stories about dorks who learn to survive in the jungles of middle school, take a look at this one!
