Save Me a Seat

on September 7, 2017

Weeks, Sarah, and Gita Varadarajan.​ Save Me a Seat.

A new boy from India and a New Jersey kid find they have much more in common then they first imagined as they navigate their first week of fifth grade.  This humorous and touching story told through the alternating perspectives of Ravi and Joe tell the story of how misperceptions, school bullies and doting Moms are the perfect recipe for the most unexpected friendships.

    What sort of things make it hard to be the new kid at a school? What would make it easier for new kids?

    I like how the story is being told by two people. And I like how there are a lot of ups and downs in the story.
