In this highly anticipated second novel by the author of the award-winning, bestselling The Thing About Jellyfish, being the new kid at school isn't easy, especially when you have to follow in the footsteps of a classroom prankster like Paulie Fink.
When Caitlyn Breen enters the tiny Mitchell School in rural Mitchell, Vermont, she is a complete outsider: the seventh grade has just ten other kids, and they've known each other since kindergarten. Her classmates are in for a shock of their own: Paulie Fink--the class clown, oddball, troublemaker, and evil genius--is gone this year.
As stories of Paulie's hijinks unfold, his legend builds, until they realize there's only one way to fill the Paulie-sized hole in their class. They'll find their next great Paulie Fink through a reality-show style competition, to be judged by the only objective person around: Caitlyn, who never even met Paulie Fink. Who was this kid, anyway--prankster, performance artist, philosopher, or fool? Caitlyn's quest to understand Paulie is about to teach her more about herself than she ever imagined.
Told via multiple voices, interviews, and other documents, The Next Great Paulie Fink is a lighthearted yet surprisingly touching exploration of how we build up and tear down our own myths...about others, our communities, and ourselves.
A no-nonsense guide that equips children for the many challenging and confusing physical, emotional, and social issues they will face in adolescence. Children are reaching puberty at a much earlier age and therefore face many "teen" issues long before their actual teenage years. Aimed at 9-12-year-olds, Help! Why Am I Changing? helps children prepare for puberty and adolescence by informing them about a wide range of issues and addressing common concerns. It covers physical changes such as starting periods and growing body hair, emotional changes such as mood swings and feelings for the opposite sex, and social issues such as cyber-bullying. With an accessible Q&A approach, it focuses directly on the concern at hand, providing practical factual information and advice and reassurance. Examples of some of the questions tackled are: "Why am I starting to get spots?" / "Why am I putting on weight?" / "Why do I feel like an outsider at school?" / "How can I deal with textual harassment?" / "Why are my parents so strict?" / "Why do I get angry all the time?"
