Tommy Wilhelm and his gang of bullies have never let fifth-grader Joshua forget that he was held back in the third grade. Now Tommy has started picking on a dorky new kid and Joshua must choose between sticking up for the nerd and saving his own neck.
"With a well-drawn school backdrop and a believable main character, this is a perceptive story that makes it plain what it's like to be an outcast and also what it takes to be a hero. Welcome back, Joshua."--Booklist
