Fish in a Tree

Fish in a Tree, a book by Lynda Mullay Hunt, is probably one of my favorite books. It is about a girl named Ally who has trouble reading and writing. She has many encounters with the school principal, especially  at her teacher’s baby shower, got her a sympathy card because she couldn’t read. Ally is teased and called dumb. When her teacher leaves, she has a new substitute who might be able to help her. Will Ally ever learn how to read, or will she be teased forever? I would give this five star. It had a great plot and an unexpected ending.
