really liked it
Recommended for: fans of Holes or Louis Sachar in general
Read in November, 2007

As a teacher, I read a lot of juvenile fiction and much of it is good! Some of it is forgettable, but this book is not. I love this book.
This book is about Bradley Chalkers. Bradley is a bully. Bradley is a behavior problem. He doesn't do his homework, classwork...anything. Teachers pass him from grade to grade just so that don't have to teach him again. Now, he's in 5th grade and his school hires a counselor named Miss Davis, or Carla, as she likes to be called. The rest, as they say, is history (for Bradley).

And, yes...he does go into the girls' bathroom! My students love this book.

Brenton Burgess Bradley really reminds me of a younger me. I used to act just like him. I nevered did my homework. I remember one day when i accidently walked in the girls bathroom. It was very very embarrassing time for me.

Rani I read the reviews for this book on the internet and thought I'd read it to myself. By the end of it I was in tears. When I read this book to my 9-10 year old students we had loads to opportunities for discussion regarding characters in the stories, the choices they make and the language used.
