Take a look at our staff review for this week’s featured book!
Lexile Level: GN 280L
Have you ever done something that you immediately regret? Well, on Penelope’s first day at her new school, she trips and drops all of her school supplies. When an unpopular boy, Jaime (nicknamed Nerder), comes to her rescue, she pushes him away and runs as fast as she can to get out of the situation. Penelope tries to avoid Jaime, but when she needs help in science, he is named her tutor. Penelope wants to say she is sorry, especially because she really finds Jaime interesting, but she never can seem to say the words. This is a great story about friendship and how people who might seem like extreme opposites can have a lot in common.
