About the Book
Atticus Hobart couldn’t feel lower. He’s in love with a girl who doesn’t know he exists, he is the class bully’s personal punching bag, and to top it all off, his dad has just left the family. Into this drama steps Mr. Looney, a 77-year-old substitute English teacher with uncanny insight and a most unconventional approach to teaching. But Atticus soon discovers there’s more to Mr. Looney’s methods than he’d first thought. And as Atticus begins to unlock the truths within his own name, he finds that his hyper-imagination can help him forge his own voice, and maybe—just maybe—discover that the power to face his problems was inside him all along.
My Take on the Book
This book was filled with great characters and a great story. At first the book was a bit slow but it got faster. Thw main character overcomes a lot, especially when it came to his parent's separating and feeling bullied. The great thing about this book is how relatable the book is to the reader, and how well it is written for the age group that this is geared toward. Atticus as a character is truly typical of what an 8th grader would experience. The author has done a great job in this book at capturing the essence of middle school with all of its' ups and downs and I know that readers will appreciate this.
