Weston, Martha. Act I, Act II, Act Normal. Roaring Brook Press, 2003. ISBN 978-0761328599 160 pp. $
For those of you with a flair for the dramatic, or fans of Gordon Korman’s No More Dead Dogs, Act I, Act II, Act Normal by Martha Weston may be the book for you. A book about middle schoolers, the annual school play, bullies, annoying-horse-obsessed little sisters, well-loved family pets, a bit of cross-dressing, this book has a bit if everything. Perhaps not the finest piece of literature ever, it’s still a good chapter book for 5th and 6th graders.
