All of Ellray's classmates have something to share. Corey is champion swimmer. Kevin is tall and his dad is rich. Jared's dad has an ATV with flames on the side. Ellray has nothing for which he can brag. He decides to take some of he rocks, from his geologist dad's rock collection, to show to his classmates. Everyone in his class is impressed and before he knows it, Ellray is giving the rocks away.

This is the second book in the Ellray series. I was looking for a book/series that I could recommend to children and parents with children of the 7-10 age group. I thought this book was preachy. There were too many sentence interruptions to explain words and adult phrases of which this age group may not be familiar. The illustrations were not appealing.
