Maverick wants to change all that. One of the last things his father left him was a toy sheriff's badge, back when Maverick was little. Now he likes to carry it around to remind him of his dad — and also to remind him to make school a better place for everyone... even if that's a hard thing to do, especially when his own home life is falling apart.
The Secret Sheriff of Sixth Grade is a story about standing up for yourself — and being a hero at home and in the halls of your school.
Raves & reviews:
"A brave book . . . Jordan Sonnenblick carries it off with such charm and elan, you forget for a moment your heart is breaking." -- Frank McCourt, author of ANGELA'S ASHES
* "Sonnenblick shows that even in the midst of tragedy, life goes on, love can flower, and the one thing you can always change is yourself." -- BOOKLIST, starred review
"The reader falls in love with the brothers, laughing and crying by turns and rooting for both of them until it almost hurts." -- KIRKUS REVIEWS
Praise for AFTER EVER AFTER:
* "As hilarious as it is tragic, and as honest as it is hopeful, don't confuse this book with inspirational reading. It's irresistible reading.” -- BOOKLIST, starred review
* "Sonnenblick's intimate first-person tale of survival is a solid stand-alone novel that will leave an emotional, uplifting imprint on readers." -- SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL, starred review
"Told with Sonnenblick's trademark self-deprecating humor, this stand-alone tween narrative slots neatly into the space between the author's YA and J titles, sensitively dealing with issues of family, friendship and death in a way that will appeal to middle-grade students. Recommended for fans and new readers alike.” -- KIRKUS REVIEWS
