This is one book of required summer reading for my 9 yr old son. I read this book before my son did and I chuckled my way through. Humor very much on par with Diary of A Wimpy Kid. I am very pleased the authors showcase kids with learning challenges is such a positive light and let it be known that they have friends who are there no matter what. Characters are all relatable: teacher who shows no slack, best friend who is there through thick and thin, girl with lotsa girl power, health nut Mom, brainy Dad and loving grandparents. We are going to be buying the rest of the series.
