Nothing's Fair in the Fifth Grade is a great book. I enjoyed reading it.It tells about an overweight girl who is often picked on. This is a good lesson, for people of all ages!

I recommend you to read this book because you wouldn't know what you were missing out on. I recommend this book for ages 10-12. The setting of this book takes place in the school. The main characters are Jenn and Elsie a plump girl. People pick on Elsie and call her names. Another reason I recommend this book is because it is so funny.

I think that this book was such a great book and I recomend it to fifth grade (and up) girls. I liked it so much that I am now going on to 'Sixth Grade can really kill you!,'The book was a very misterious book. It always left you in suspence. I liked that a lot about this book. This book teaches a lesson to people who judge people by their outside, and don't care if they are really nice. I think everybody should read this book!

Nothing seems to be fair for Jenny or Elsie. It's a very good book, but sad in some ways, and the characters have these personalities I have never seen in reality. I recommend for ages 10-15. - Bookworm
