How important are test scores and report cards? Should a kid challenge the system? Besides good storytelling and great narrative voice, what I admire most about Andrew Clements is that he doesn't take the easy way out of his character's moral dilemmas. His "school stories" could so easily become trite and formulaic, but they don't. The parents and teachers aren't perfect, but they aren't villains. The children have really good ideas, but their understanding is also limited by their age & experience. The Report Card will make readers think but not despair. That's an accomplishment at any level!
