A Notable Children's Books in the Language Arts (American Library Association) A Florida Sunshine State Young Reader's Award short list title

If only getting a new life were as easy as getting a new notebook. But it's not.

It's the first day of school for all the kids in the neighborhood. But not for me. I'm homeschooled. Thatmeans nothing new. No new book bag, no new clothes, and no friends -- old or new. The best I've got is this notebook. I'm supposed to use it for my writing assignments, but my dad never checks. Here's what I'm really going to use it for:

Ratchet's Top Secret Plan Project Goal: turn my old, recycled, freakish, friendless, motherless life into something shiny and new.

Praise for This Journal Belongs to Ratchet: "I cannot imagine a middle grade classroom or library where this book wouldn't be popular."--Colby Sharp, teacher and co-founder of Nerdy Book Club "One of the freshest new voices I've heard in a while...this debut novel is a winner."--Augusta Scattergood, Author of Glory Be, an Amazon Best Middle Grade Novel of 2012 "A book that is full of surprises . . . Triumphant enough to makereaders cheer; touching enough to make them cry."--Kirkus, STARRED Review

Great for parents, librarians and educators looking for: An illustrated format for middle grade readers, especailly for reluctant readers and those who love graphic novels A narrative featuring environmentalism and a positive view on activism for kids A story featuring a strongfemale character A heartwarming story that combines coming of age and accepting one's identity
