The View from Saturday by Josh
What could possibly bring four 6th graders from very different crowds together to become close friends and an outstanding team competing in the New York academic bowl? Read The View from Saturday to find out the answer to that very question.
Noah, Nadia, Ethan, and Julian have each had their own journey, mentally and physically, before the school year. This only takes up half the book, because the real challenge comes when they’re chosen as a team by their teacher, Mrs. Olinski, to be in the New York academic bowl. This book also includes a ton of fun facts about things from turtles to calligraphy (a special type of handwriting). So, does this team of sixth graders have what it takes really win?
