Brendan Buckley's Sixth-Grade Experiment
Nov 08, 2011
Brendan Buckley is starting 6th grade. He looks at life with the keen eyes of a scientist. He loves rock crystals, science experiments and his pet anoles, Einstein. Brendan keeps a “log” because diaries are for girls. He tracks his scientific findings and his feelings about the social world of junior high. This is the sequel to Frazier’s Brendan Buckley’s Universe and Everything In It. Junior high means his universe is getting more confusing, especially when it comes to girls. Brendan mets a new girl at his grandfather’s geology club. She loves rocks just as much as he does. He likes her ok at geology club, but she might ruin his rep at school. She annoys him, but why does he get that funny feeling when she’s around? Brendan goes through all the regular 12 year old stuff, falling outs with friends, romance issues, loss of a pet and is constantly trying to impress his imposing father. On top of that, his family is preparing to adopt a baby. Brendan is a biracial character. His grandmother calls him her milk chocolate. I love Brendan. He is a nice character who navigates the junior high world and all of its pitfalls. Boys will have an easy time relating to him and all the stuff that happens in this book.
