Independent Reading Level-3rd-7th grade
For all the kids who loved [b:Wonder|11387515|Wonder|R.J. Palacio|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1309285027s/11387515.jpg|16319487], this is Wonder with a lot more meat on its bones. I think this is the best bullying novel I've ever read. I wish it were a little shorter, because it's a perfect all-school read but I worry it'll intimidate some kids. My first 6th grade reviewer said it took her awhile to get into it (also a concern for all-school-reads), but by the end she was copying quotes down and asked to keep it so she could re-read it before she returned it to the library.
Anderson vividly portrays each boy in Frost’s group, their intertwined relationships, and their individual responses to the changes that inevitably come. Initially not well understood by the narrator, Rose gradually comes into focus as an individual and an agent of inevitable change. This rewarding novel should resonate with many readers.— Carolyn Phelan

In middle school, words aren't just words. They can be weapons. They can be gifts. The right words can win you friends or make you enemies. They can come back to haunt you. Sometimes they can change things forever. When cell phones are banned at Branton Middle School, Frost and his friends Deedee, Wolf, and Bench come up with a new way to communicate: leaving sticky notes for each other all around the school. It catches on, and soon all the kids in school are leaving notes -- though for every kind and friendly one, there is a cutting and cruel one as well. In the middle of this, a new girl named Rose arrives at school and sits at Frost's lunch table. Rose is not like anyone else at Branton Middle School, and it's clear that the close circle of friends Frost has made for himself won't easily hold another. As the sticky-note war escalates, and the pressure to choose sides mounts, Frost soon realizes that after this year, nothing will ever be the same.

To be honest though, I'm not sure what the point of this story was, nor do I think the kids really learned much beyond the fact that words have consequences and just because you can, doesn't necessarily mean you should. Which isn't a bad lesson to learn - one of the things about free speech is that you should take responsibility for your words.
The lesson is kind of diffuse and I don't think the narrator, Frost (Eric), was the best pick for the author. The nicknames are annoying, to be honest, but this is middle school, so ...
Middle school, it seems, is a dangerous place these days. And I thought high school was bad.
When did the word "tribe" replace "clique"? Both mean, functionally, the same thing in this book: a group of people you hang out with and share a common interest (though clique does have some major negative connotations and has for a long time.) ( )
