This is like a boys' version of Just Grace. Morgan and Lewis meet in the woods when Lewis's underwear catches on a branch and traps him in a tree. Morgan climbs up to help him and their shared experiences begin. There are some unexpected twists and turns to the story that make it a page turner. Charise Mericle Harper has a gift for getting us inside the heads of nine-year-olds. I will be recommending this series to the kids that come into our library, particularly boys who have not yet fallen in love with reading.
