The View from Saturday

The View from Saturday is four stories in one, each told with the unique voice of a member of the four person sixth grade Academic Bowl team. Together they explain how these four students were chosen and why it is that working together they can beat the sixth, seventh and even eighth grade teams.

We agree with Publishers Weekly that this book is "glowing with humor and dusted with magic."
