Full Text Reviews:

School Library Journal - 05/01/2012 Gr 2–4—EllRay Jakes feels that he cannot do anything right. It all begins when the third grader brings the class goldfish home over spring break and his little sister, Alfie, accidentally kills it. EllRay takes the blame, and his classmates become frustrated with him; one girl goes a step too far and ends up bullying him. Throughout the story, he remains loyal to his sister and is willing to take responsibility for everything that goes wrong—even if he shouldn't. This easy read uses language that is believable for this age group. Also believable is EllRay's relationship with Alfie. Though he finds her incredibly annoying at times, his need to protect her always wins out and is a really sweet part of this early chapter book. Cartoon illustrations appear throughout. Reluctant and enthusiastic readers alike will enjoy this title—Elizabeth Swistock, Orange County Public Library, VA - Copyright 2012 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
