With great school scenes, a surefire subject for a first chapter book. Secrets are in the air. A big surprise birthday party is being planned. Someone in class has brought in a little snake that has gotten loose in the classroom. Mike would like to be in on these and the other secrets of his friends but no one ever wants to tell him anything because he can't keep things to himself. His classmate Amy knows a different kind of a secret a really important one. She's bursting to share it with someone, but she doesn't know whom she can confide in, and even if she should. P. J. Petersen has a knack for finding situations that will get readers attention and hold it. His special brand of light humor, genuine understanding of kids and school dynamics, and his realistic dialogue has made him popular with the young middle-grade crowd he writes about so well. Like The Sub, his best-selling novel, this book should appeal to a wide audience of girls and boys. Easy to read and right in tune with the concerns of kids, here's the perfect book for anyone who has ever kept a secret or told one.
