Synopsis

Numbers by David A. Poulsen

#1 Calgary Herald Bestseller

Andy Crockett doesn t fit in at his new school not with the goths, not with the jocks, and certainly not with the brains. Not even, really, with The Six, a group of misfits who hang out with each other mostly because they can t stand hanging out with anyone else.

But eventually Andy also begins to understand that acing the class might just have a greater cost than he s willing to pay. And when it turns out that Mr. Retzlaff might not be so cool after all, Andy is facing the most difficult decision of his life.

Reviews

Numbers is a cautionary tale about the importance of questioning authority and demonstrates how easy it is to be swayed by charisma over facts lessons which need to be re-learned over and over again from one generation to the next. - AJL Review

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
