it was amazing
bookshelves: j, life, not-graphic, voice, humor

Wonderfully voiced first-person narration about a second-grader trying to deal with school and all of the other things that scare him.

I was thinking about running and hiding, when . . .

"Wanna be desk buddies again?" It was Flea. She was my desk buddy in first grade. She is a girl.

I wanted to say no way. Nobody wants a girl desk buddy, except for maybe a girl. The scary thing about girls is that they are not boys. Most girls are no good at robbery and mayhem. They can't punch. but they can kick, which hurts. They skip rope too fast. They are boring. I opened my mouth to tell her all this, but . . .

My tongue turned into sandpaper.

Nothing came out.
