A Boy Named Queen

A Boy Named Queen
By Sara Cassidy
Groundwood Books, 2016. Fiction. 77 p.

When a new boy named Queen enters Evelyn’s fifth grade class, she quickly strikes up a friendship with the confident, off-beat kid and soon realizes that how you react to the world, not how the world reacts to you, what truly matters. A Boy Named Queen is reminiscent of Gary D. Schmidt’s work as it gives you lots of things to think about but keeps a somewhat lighter tone, which makes it great for younger readers. A quick read for book discussion groups.
