Okay for Now

I just finished Gary Schmidt’s latest, Okay for Now, a companion to The Wednesday Wars.  Good read, humorous, historical without being heavy handed.  About the power of libraries, birds and art to help one overcome a bullying brother, abusive father, and a move to a strange place.  Not a Printz winner but a fun and engaging read none-the-less.  Appropriate for 6 grade and up.  Enjoy!
