Fish in a Tree

Fish In A TreeFish In A Tree by Lynda Mullaly Hunt
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ally is in middle school, and because she never stays in one school for very long, she has been able to fool all her teachers. Ally is a smart kid, but she struggles with reading. She has never read an entire book in her life. In fact, when she looks at a page in any book, the letters seem to move. She finally meets her match when a new teacher, Mr. Daniels, realizes that Ally has a major problem. But this book is about much more than a reading disability--it's about friendship, and mean kids, and teachers who really care. I loved all of Ally's friends, they were all a little quirky in their own ways, but they are all kids you might meet in any middle school. A good choice for 6th and 7th graders.
