It all began with Ruby Sandels. She had to text a friend about Ms. Sheers, and when Ms. Sheers saw her…well, that was that. In the blink of an eye ALL cell phones were banned from school. And that was only the beginning. Frost, Wolf, DeeDee, and Bench had formed a friendship at the start of sixth grade, and no one bugged them when they sat together in the cafeteria. They were the four amigos, all different, and, still, they fit together like the characters they played in D&D. That is, they all fit together until Rose Holland sat down at their table. A girl! A girl. At. Their. Table. Posted is one of those books your read, and wish you’d written. The characterizations of middle school kids is spot on; it’s funny when it means to be, sad when it has to be, and when things get exciting… well, they’re exciting. This is a keeper.
