There's a Boy in the Girls' Bathroom by Louis Sachar

The beloved bestseller from Newbery Medalist and National Book Award winner Louis Sachar (Holes), with a brand-new cover!
“Give me a dollar or I’ll spit on you.” 
That’s Bradley Chalkers for you. He’s the oldest kid in the fifth grade. He tells enormous lies. He picks fights with girls, and the teachers say he has serious behavior problems. No one likes him—except Carla, the new school counselor. She thinks Bradley is sensitive and generous, and she even enjoys his far-fetched stories. Carla knows that Bradley could change, if only he weren’t afraid to try.
But when you feel like the most hated kid in the whole school, believing in yourself can be the hardest thing in the world. . . .

I read this book in a literature circle in an education class at my university. I quite enjoyed it even being 21 years old. The characters were dynamic and every chapter read was a surprise in itself. It opened my eyes to what it was like to be in fifth grade again.
The story puts you in the shoes of the main character and you get to relive the fifth grade experience again. You get to see the trails of what it is like to be a child that does not feel like they are accepted and the ways the child will act out and attempt to fit in. I was aware of all the things a child goes through but how big of an impact it had on the child kind of blurred until I read this book. Peer acceptance is a big thing to a student but also how a teacher treats a student plays a large role in their success. This book shows this.
You are reminded of the ways kids interact, what it was like to have crushes, the embarrassment tied to accidentally walking into the bathroom of the opposite sex, and what it is like to be left alone. You remember hall passes, getting gold stars or praise, and recess.
This book teaches good moral lessons to kids and adults alike. It also provides future educators or parent on ideas on how to deal with, and properly communicate with, students or kid who feel isolated.
This is an fun story which captures the imagination and uses an array of good vocabulary for a fifth grade reader (approximate). I would strongly recommend it to be implemented in a classroom for literature circles, buddy and/or independent readings because it is an interesting story which kids can connect to and really get into. Students will get into the book starting with just the cover. Just wait until they flip through the pages.

Have you ever done something you didn¿t mean to do? Then There¿s a Boy in the Girl¿s Bathroom is just the book for you! The story is about a boy named Bradley Chalkers who has to learn to behave and do better in school. I enjoyed reading the book because I thought it was hilarious. Bradley was held back when he was in fourth grade 'making him the biggest, oldest boy in Ms. Ebbel¿s fifth grade class' and it was probably not his last time in fifth grade. He makes friends with Jeff Fishkin, and Carla Davis, the school counselor. Ms. Davis often sees Bradley or Jeff for sessions. This makes me think about my little brother who¿s extremely annoying, like Bradley. You¿re probably thinking I¿m going to tell you more, but nice try. Do you think Bradley will change from mean to nice? Will he do better in school? Find out in There¿s a Boy in the Girl¿s Bathroom!

I read this book in 4th grade for literature circles. We had 3 books to choose from: A basketball book, a talking cat book, or There's a Boy in the Girl's Bathroom. I picked this book because it was LOUIS SACHAR and it had a funny name. The other 2 people in my group picked the other 2 books. We all had a fight over which one and couldn't decide so the teacher randomly picked one with her eyes closed. This one was picked and my group got mad but I knew I would like this book just 'cause it had a funny, stupid title. Better than basketball or a talking cat at least. We started reading this book and we ALL LOVED IT! At the end I almost cried and my group was sad because of that. (Not going to tell). This was the first book in my life besides anime that I haven't found boring at all. I would re-read this book anytime.

There¿s A Boy in the Girl¿s Bathroom written by Louis Sachar, is about Bradley and Jeff friendship at school. Bradley has problems at school with girls, his friend Jeff, and the teacher¿s. One time there was Jeff going somewhere and than! Well I am not going to tell you it is really funny. My favorite part was when Jeff and Bradley went to a girl¿s bathroom and they both got screamed at a girl. There was this great and funny part where Bradley was crying and he is a bully because someone who Bradley likes is transferring to another school. There¿s this part where Bradley and Jeff got hit by the same girl. That girl gave them both a black eye. Bradley goes to a birthday party this is his first time going to a birthday party. It is Colleen birthday. You should read this book it is really funny and a little bit sad. You should read what gift did Bradley gave Colleen for her birthday party. This is like the best book I have ever read I hope you like the book good luck.

I read this book twenty years ago, and I loved it. Now I am buying this book for my daughter. This was one of my first chapter books, and it made me feel like I was in the book with Bradley, they need to make more books like this, for our kids today.

I personally love this book! I have a lot of connections throughout the story so I can connect with some of the characters. Probaly even if the connections were not there I could probaly still feel the emotions of the character. I am in third grade and the characters are in fifth so even though I am not the exact age I can stll connect. It doesn't matter how old you are because in my opioin this book is great for all genera's

I really enjoyed this book. It is about a boy called Bradley who acts like he doesn't want to know anyone but deeply wishes to be accepted and get good grades. His only friends for a lot of the book are a collection of figurines through which he expresses his feelings. It is very funny and clever
