Lexile measure:
Judge is desperate. He's not doing well in science, not matter how hard he tries, and now his grade depends on the egg-drop competition he's entered with his twin brother. But will Jury cooperate? And even if he does, will it be enough to earn them a place in the competition? In Jacqueline Turner Banks's third book abut the "posse" at Plank Elementary School, it's Judge's turn to tell his story. Worried, sensitive, and learning to come to terms with dyslexia, Judge tells of his struggles with schoolwork, with a sometimes difficult brother, and with finding his own self-esteem. It's a story that readers will enjoy, sympathize with, and eagerly follow to a happy and logical conclusion.
