The Benefits of Being an Octopus

Zoey, a seventh-grade student, has much more on her mind than typical seventh grade stuff; she deals with significant responsibilities with her siblings, a complicated relationship with her mother, and the daily realities presented by poverty. Zoey’s perspective is a welcome addition to the bookshelf providing a voice and mirror to many students who sit in our classrooms. An excellent read for upper elementary and junior high students.
