Twerp

By: Mark Goldblatt

BOOK TALK

Sixth grader Julian Twerski is known for two things he can be proud of: he’s the fastest kid at PS 23 and he’s really smart. However, things are about to change. There’s a new fifth grader who is faster than he is. And if he’s so smart, why does he keep making such bad decisions? Julian’s participation in an unfortunate incident gives him a new reputation.  He is now known for something that he’s not proud of.  Something he doesn’t want to talk (or write) about. Were he and his friends just boys being boys or did they cross a line?
