save me a seat coverSave Me a Seat by Sarah Weeks and Gita Varadarajan
Recommended for: Grades 3-6

5th graders Joe and Ravi may seem very different, but they have a few things in common. Ravi just arrived from India, and is adjusting to life in the United States. Joe is adjusting to the challenges of staying under the radar while his mom is the new cafeteria aide. Both boys are quickly judged by their peers, misunderstood, and tormented by the same bully, Dillon Samreen. Told in alternating chapters from Joe’s and Ravi’s point of view, this story takes place over one week of school. If you like the Mr. Terupt books by Bob Buyea or the Wonder books by R.J. Palacio, give Save Me a Seat a try.
