A layered, compassionate look at one boy's experience of poverty in middle school

Rex Ogle does an amazing job of bringing to stark life his experience of navigating poverty, abuse, food insecurity, racism, and the digital divide during such a pivotal period of his adolescence. This title really opened my eyes to the anger and shame - and adult responsibility - kids in these situations are made to feel for things so outside of their control. I highly recommend for tween, teen and adult readers!
