It’s the start of the school year, and nothing feels right to Justin. He didn’t get the teacher he wanted, he’s not in the same class as his best friend, and his little sister, Elizabeth, is starting kindergarten at his school. Elizabeth doesn’t seem nervous at all. Justin is very nervous about third grade. And to top it off, he’s lost his favorite stuffed animal, but he can’t tell anyone, because technically he’s too old to still have stuffed animals. Right?

Title and Author
Justin Case Rachel Vail

Plot Summary
It's about a boy named Justin and his life in elementary/3rd grade. Nothing feels right to him. He hates it because he is moved from the classroom that his 2nd best friend Noah is in!

Plot High Point
My favorite part was when he woke up and realized he had no worries at all anymore. He is not afraid of bad guys or jiggly food or getting beat up by runny-aroundy kids or loud noises or death or dogs that growl. He has become the bravest kid on earth. April Fools.

Main Characters
Justin, Xavier, Gianni, Montana C., Daisy and Noah

It took place at his house and his school. It is the present.

Personal Opinion
I love this book!!!!!! I liked reading about his life and what it's like to be at school (because I'm home schooled). I liked Justin a lot. He's just like a normal kid. But he freaks out a lot about tons of different things. He's really funny because he exaggerates a lot. Like he thought that if he didn't climb this rope that was really high that he wouldn't pass third grade and he'd have to do it all over again. This book was pretty easy for me to read (I'm almost 9). I really loved it a lot!
