The Losers Club by Andrew Clements - ESSENTIAL

Clements, Andrew  The Losers Club, 227 pages. Penguin Random House, 2017. $17. Content: Language: G; Mature Content: G; Violence: PG. 
Alec loves to read so much he often finds himself in the principal's office for reading during class. Mrs. Vance tells Alec to not read in class because if he continues he will have to go to summer school. Not reading during class is killing Alec so he decides to create a club in Extended Day Program, an after school program. He dedicates his club to reading and calls his club the Losers Club. The name is to keep other kids from joining the club so he can spend his time reading by himself.
This book is about Alec’s journey through friendship, dealing with his ex-friend turned bully, his crush, and learning about himself. This book was super cute. I loved how it got the good and the bad of being a kid. I thought that the characters were well developed and I loved the way the book was written.
