by | Read by Keith Nobbs

Children Ages 8+ • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

With each school-based book, author Andrew Clements delves into both the psyches of students and unvisited arenas of school life. This story travels the halls between the art room and the principal’s office as sixth-grader Clay—who emulates his tough-guy older brother, Mitch—faces vandalism charges and the difficult notion of change. Narrator Keith Nobbs transitions easily among the roles of Clay, brother Mitch, principal Kellin, and secretary Ormin. Nobbs’s nonchalant manner moves the narrative parts of the story along. His voice expresses surprise and anxiety as Clay realizes that Mitch is steering him in a whole new direction, remoteness as Mitch describes his prison experience, and rich-voiced friendliness as Kellin, the principal, gives a kid another chance.
