A shift in perspective can change everything.
This brilliant new novel from the author of The Seventh Most Important Thing celebrates kids who see the world a little differently.
April is looking for an escape from the sixth-grade lunch hour, which has become a social-scene nightmare, so she signs up to be a buddy bench monitor for the fourth graders´ recess.
Joey Byrd is a boy on the fringes, who wanders the playground alone, dragging his foot through the dirt. But over time, April realizes that Joey isn´t just making random circles. When you look at his designs from above, a story emerges... Joey´s bird´s eye drawings reveal what he observes and thinks about every day.
Told in alternating viewpoints--April´s in text and Joey´s mostly in art--the story gives the whole picture of what happens as these two outsiders find their rightful places.
