The Schwa was Here was a very good book with a storyline that interested me until the end. I think that children my age (age 11) would enjoy this book and it should be shared. Both boys and girls would like it. It's about a boy who was hardly noticed until another boy recognized his talents and befriends him. They share a close bond with each other so it's a story of friendship.

It was pretty good

I don't think this was one of my favorite books, but I still kept reading the book, and I think it started to get better as you kept reading it. Check it out!

    Quite Creative

    I needed a book to read for class, so I went to the library and checked this out. I was looking for a different kind of book than I usually read, and I never read the inside flap or back of a book to see what happens, so I was totally surprised with this. I couldn't put it down. It's like nothing I've heard about before... Not totally invisible, but partially.

    How could you not LOVE this book?

    Here I am again! Well i have to say that i loved this book and that you need to read it. Well Antsy(anthony) was with his friend when he met 'The Schwa' and they became INSTANT friends! well Antsy falls inlove and THE SCHWA thinks he is inlove but not really, how could you not love this book already? But when THE SCHWA(CALVIN) finds out the hard cold truth of why his mother just left him in a strange place as a baby, he does something you wouldnt believe! So if youve read this book, you know what the suprise is,but if you dont youll have to rad it! well I have to go! i will see you in another Review!

    It's Realistic!

    The Schwa sounds so real, like he could jump out of the book at any time! I probably wouldn't know if he did though because I probably couldn't see him. My favorite part of the book was when they both competed for the same girl, it sounds like a normal middle school life! Girls probably think it's discriminatory, but Lexie was totaly oblivious!
