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.

    This book is awesome and I love how there are two people telling the story. I love how this is at school and at home, there are two story settings. I think this book would be better if there was longer. I think you should try this book!
