This story is about a kid Robbie York who doesn't think he's cool. He goes to school and finds out he is in the same class as a bully Bo Hany. He thinks he is the most uncool third grader. That night he makes a list for what he thinks he needs to be cool. The next day he goes to school and they get reading buddys and Robbie is a reading buddy.The thing he doen't no is he is buddys with Bo Hany. That day his mom goes to the store and he asks his mom to get jeans and white underware. Do you think these new close will make him cool? Read the book to find out.
