for Emma-Jean Lazarus Fell Out of a Tree by Lauren Tarshis
If you took The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-timeand Ida B . . . and Her Plans to Maximize Fun, Avoid Disaster, and (Possibly) Save the Worldand put them in a middle-grade blender, you would have the book Emma- Jean Lazarus Fell Out of a Tree.Quirky, honest, and written by first-time author Lauren Tarshis, this is a tender story about what happens when a girl who has long stood in the social shadows gets a taste of what it's like to connect with kids her own age.
