I am reviewing a copy of Farah Rocks Fifth Grade through Capstone/Stone Arch Books and Netgalley:
Farah and her best friend Allie Liu are getting excited about turning in their applications for the Magnet Academy where they both want to attend sixth grade. After a new girl Dana Denver shows up in school and begins bullying Farrah’s little brother Samir, Farah’s world is turned upside down. Farah begins to question her decision in leaving Harbortown Elementary/Middle School so she begins purposely doing poorly in classes. Determined to handle it on her own, Farah comes up with a plan–a plan that involves lying to those closest to her. Will her lies catch up with her, or can Farah find a way to defeat the bully and rock fifth grade?
This would be a perfect read for eight to twelve year olds a book that shows a strong main character standing up against bullying.
I give Farah rocks the fifth grade five out of five stars!
