ALEX RYAN, STOP THAT!
New York : Farrar, Straus,
and Giroux, 2003.
IL 5-8, RL 5.8
grader Alex Ryan is the class clown. You know the type. The
guy who can say just the right thing so the teacher can't hear but you
crack up. And then who gets in trouble? But you just know that
Alex will get his eventually. And that's what happens on the outdoor
education field trip. Alex's dad is chaperoning and Alex is the object
of Dad's criticism. And then there's Marcia. The girl of Alex's
dream. But it seems that whatever he does to get her to notice him
turns out badly. This is a funny book about middle school kids.
