This 64 page literature kit complements the study of FEATHERS (by Jacqueline Wilson). A new boy comes to Frannie's 6th grade class. He's different though. He doesn't seem to fit in at all and Trevor makes certain to let the new boy know.
The class has named him "Jesus Boy" ... is that a compliment...or meant to make fun of him?
Segregation is over in the 1970's ... right?
Even though Frannie tries not to think about the new boy, she does. There's something about him that intrigues her. And her best friend Samantha sees something in him that Frannie doesn't yet see.
This book is an endearing story that will make students take a look at "the other side" of things. There is much room for discussion about bullying, treating others kindly, inner emotions, and more.
