A story of starting middle school on the free lunch program, heartbreaking and true. Rex and his baby brother often went hungry, wore secondhand clothes, were short of school supplies and Rex was on the school's free lunch program and subject not only to physical hunger but the humiliation of having it announced every day in the school lunch line. Rex's is a compelling story of a more profound hunger-that of a child for his parents' love and care. Large print hardcover format.
