Book Overview

Fans of R.J. Palacio's Wonder will appreciate this feel-good story of friendship and unconventional smarts. --Kirkus Reviews

Ally has been smart enough to fool a lot of smart people. Every time she lands in a new school, she is able to hide her inability to read by creating clever yet disruptive distractions. She is afraid to ask for help; after all, how can you cure dumb? However, her newest teacher Mr. Daniels sees the bright, creative kid underneath the trouble maker. With his help, Ally learns not to be so hard on herself and that dyslexia is nothing to be ashamed of. As her confidence grows, Ally feels free to be herself and the world starts opening up with possibilities. She discovers that there's a lot more to her--and to everyone--than a label, and that great minds don't always think alike.

The author of the beloved One for the Murphys gives readers an emotionally-charged, uplifting novel that will speak to anyone who's ever thought there was something wrong with them because they didn't fit in. This paperback edition includes The Sketchbook of Impossible Things and discussion questions.

   Great For Upper Elementary Readers
I read this book over the summer in preparation for my school year teaching 5th graders reading. There were many facets to the main character Ally both in and out of school that tweens can definitely connect to. I would recommend especially for those students who enjoy reading about overcoming obstacles and showing resilience. Great also for teaching character development.
