Freak the Mighty, written by Rodman Philbrick, is a touching young adult novel that I read several years ago. It concerns the unlikely friendship between Maxwell Kane (who suffers from lack of self-esteem) and Kevin Avery, who although diagnosed with Morquio Syndrome, has enough confidence for the both of them.
Freak the Mighty was another of my very favorite books to read to my 4th-5th graders. At the end of the year when I asked kids which Read Aloud was a favorite, this always finished in the top 3 of most every kid's list.

The Fourth Stall (Fourth Stall, #1) / Chris Rylander "Sixth-graders Mac and Vince operate a business charging schoolmates for protection from bullies and for help to negotiate conflicts peacefully, with amazing challenges and results."
The Fourth Stall Book Review | Must Read Book List | Kd Books
The Fourth Stall ~ Chris Rylander. Pinner writes: "If you have a problem, and you can pay him, 6th-grader Mac is on your side. His office is located in the East Wing boys' bathroom, fourth stall from the high window - and business is booming. Spoofs The Godfather and A-Team! Great book for upper elementary and middle school kids. The book examines the reasons why a person might do something that is wrong for very good reasons. Humor and some surprising plot twists."

TWERP by Mark Goldblatt-This will be a powerful read aloud for 5th grade and 6th grade classes. It will allow for discussion on making right choices even if it goes against the wishes of friends. I would put in a fourth grade library, and share with mature third graders.

Twerp by Mark Goldblatt: In Queens, New York, in 1969, twelve-year-old Julian Twerski writes a journal for his English teacher in which he explores his friendships and how they are effected by girls, a new student who may be as fast as Julian, and especially an incident of bullying.
Book Review of "Twerp," by Mark Goldblatt - Julian Twerski isn’t a bully. He’s just made a big mistake. He has done something he is deeply ashamed of, something that goes against the grain of his conscience. When he returns to school after a weeklong suspension, his English teacher offers him a deal: if he keeps a journal and writes about the incident that got him and his friends suspended, he can get out of writing a report on Shakespeare
Julian Twerski isn''t a bully. He made a mistake.he returns to school after a week suspension, English teacher offers him a deal: keep a journal about the incident-he can get out of writing a report on Shakespeare. Julian jumps at the chance/ begins his account of life in 6 gr--blowing up homemade fireworks, writing a love letter for his best friend & worrying whether he''s still the fastest kid. 1 story he can''t bring himself to tell, the one story his teacher wants to hear.

Polly Dunbar - My Dad's a Birdman by David Almond

Polly Dunbar's illustration for "My Dad's a Birdman" by David Almond
For David Almond, becoming a dad inspired him to write a picture book text, and taught him, first hand, ‘how books work’: “when a kid reads a book, even though she’s seen the book twenty-five times before, you turn the page and there’s a sense of anticipation and surprise […] they’re very simple and elemental about stories. It’s about a series of discoveries and uncoverings and opening of secrets and seeing what’s on the next page”.

The Hunger Games Triology by Suzanne Collins. In my top 10 list of books worth reading. Soon in theaters!
The Hunger Games: Suzanne Collins. This is amaezing book series and I can't wait to see the movie!
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins #Books #HungerGames - Read
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. another book on my top ten list of all time favorite books. Its disturbing in the best possible way. Its a series that doesn't coddle you and isn't coated in sugar like many of the recent young adult litereature(Twilight). Its gritty and grim, and will leave you worn out from an emotional roller coaster. It has a depth to it that many YA fiction authors are afraid to use. And speaking of YA Fiction, this series isn't limited to youth, it can touch those of any age. Definitely a series worth reading.
"The Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins. A great book and great movie.

The Adoration of Jenna Fox (Jenna Fox Chronicles)- Did not like this one. Too much science fiction for me.
The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E Pearson Book Review by Everead, "I couldn't put this one down. I think it was a combination of the very short entries, compelling situation, and the fact that Jenna is smart. She doesn't ignore the clues or sit around waiting for all the pieces to come to her. The book asks awesome questions about ethics and identity and makes you think."
