He got the wrong teacher, his best friend is not in his class, and his little sister will be starting at his school. As if these things aren't bad enough, he has lost his favorite stuffed animal (but is embarrassed to tell anyone), and he is afraid of the dog he begged his parents to get. Add to that the horror of times tables, gym class, and cursive, and Justin worries how he'll ever survive third grade.</div><br /><br /></div> <div style='margin:0; padding:0; text-align:left;'> <a href='http://www.storysnoops.com/detail.php?id=1145'><img border='0' src='http://images.amazon.com/images/P/1416935045.01._PA00,10,10,10_BO30,225,225,225_SCLZZZZZZZ_SL130_.jpg' alt='book cover'><br />Four Truths and a Lie</a> <br /> <div style='width:500px; margin:0; padding:0; text-align:left;'>Scarlett has left her old school and her old friends for a new start at Brookline Academy for Girls. A scandal involving her father tainted her old life and she wants to be where no one knows anything about it. Brookline is a rigorously academic boarding school, and Scarlett has a new roommate to adjust to, as well as a heavy load of homework.

He has his hands full with seven distinctive voices in his class: Jessica is the smart, new girl who isn't quite fitting in. Luke is the brain. Anna has a home life she's embarrassed about, and just wants to disappear. Peter is the class clown, who can't seem to sit down and focus. Lexie is a bully who feels that the best defense is a good offense. Jeffery just hates school, and nobody really knows why. Overweight Danielle can't ever seem to stand up for herself. Only Mr. Terupt seems able to reach his students, and things are beginning to look up for each of them until a fateful winter day where an accident occurs that will change everything and everyone.</div><br /><br /></div> <div style='margin:0; padding:0; text-align:left;'> <a href='http://www.storysnoops.com/detail.php?id=922'><img border='0' src='http://images.amazon.com/images/P/0152066446.01._PA00,10,10,10_BO30,225,225,225_SCLZZZZZZZ_SL130_.jpg' alt='book cover'><br />If a Tree Falls at Lunch Period</a> <br /> <div style='width:500px; margin:0; padding:0; text-align:left;'>Kirsten McKenna and Walker Jones are both starting seventh grade at the same school, but have never met. Kirsten is thrilled that summer is over so she can get back to her best friend and away from her parents, who only communicate through an intermediary, which may explain why she's gained so much weight in the past few months. Walk just wants to keep his head down at the predominantly white private school his mom transferred him to so that he can stay out of trouble. When Kirsten and Walk meet, they instantly take a liking to one another, but they are completely unprepared for the shocking truth that links them together forever.</div><br /><br /></div> editor@storysnoops.com (StorySnoops Editor) http://www.storysnoops.com/booksotw.php#2016-08-30
