In this delightful story, presented as a diary, listeners meet Cody Lee Carson. As he begins fifth grade in a new school, he decides to reinvent himself. Narrator Johnny Heller shares Cody's challenging and difficult, but always entertaining, journey. Heller splendidly recreates Cody's internal dialogues as he encourages himself not to slip back to his argumentative and defeatist old self. Heller's portrayal of Cody's sometimes girlfriend, Amy, and his pesky little sister are particularly enjoyable. An excellent choice--every young person will see him/herself at least once in this fun story. S.G.B. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 04/ JAN 05]
