When a mean classmate

Overview

Eleven-year-old Josh’s summer is getting off to a rough start. Instead of being out on the water in his sailing dinghy, he’s stuck at the library with the latest in a long string of tutors. Josh is dyslexic—and since he moved out west to live with Dad, a whole new crop of kids has been teasing him about his reading problems.

When a mean classmate bets Josh that he can’t beat her in an upcoming boat race, Josh isn’t too worried. With his brother Matt as his racing crew, he knows he can win. But when Matt bails on him, Josh’s anxiety goes into overdrive. If he loses the race, he’ll have to read aloud on Literacy Day—his worst nightmare!

Just when things seem hopeless, help comes from some unexpected new friends. Will it be enough for Josh to prove what he’s made of?

Editorial Reviews

Resource Links
"The depiction of dyslexia was appreciated as the sheer frustration and embarrassment Josh experiences when trying to read comes across very strongly. This book is an excellent read for other children who are experiencing similar literacy issues and it portrays a very hopeful ending regarding Josh’s struggles."
CM Magazine
"The book’s strength lies in its portrayal of dyslexia, its frustrations, and how Josh learns to manage his learning disability."
