children's middlegrade (navigating middleschol 6th/7yh grade, changing friends, bullying)
sweet story about one kid whose parents are going through an unexpected, though amicable, divorce and his online scrabble friend whose dad has just had a serious heart attack. Both kids are in real need of a good friend (though both kids do have loving parents). This is a pretty forgettable story, but young word pundits may enjoy the wordplay (which isn't a major feature) and other kids should be able to relate to feeling a bit lost and uncared for in the reality that is middle school.

Twelve-year-old Charlotte and 11-year-old Ben are both going through an extremely stressful week -- Charlotte's older father in hospital after a heart attack and Ben's parents have just announced to him that they are getting a divorce. Entering middle school has meant both tweens have grown apart from their elementary school friends and aren't sure who they can reach out to now. The pair -- who only know each other through a virtual Scrabble game -- begin talking to each other on the phone.

This was a lovely book about the difficult feelings that often happen to middle school students -- losing old friends, making new friends, feeling lonely, feeling disconnected, dealing with school problems, dealing with home problems, worrying what everyone is thinking about them, and dealing with bullying and teasing. It was extremely heartfelt and I can imagine many children will see themselves in some of the situations presented. The power of friendship (as well as strong family bonds) is highlighted throughout.

Using just one week of their lives was an interesting device, and Kelly manages to explore the characters in great depth by using memories of past events to fully flesh out the characters and storyline. Everything is not perfect by the end but the conclusion is optimistic. I would definitely recommend this to middle school students who will either recognize themselves in the characters and/or gain empathy for others they see at school or social events. ( )

Written by Erin Entrada Kelly. This book addresses several of the issues that children in schools are dealing with – bullying, separation of parents and self-esteem. Ben (11) and Charlotte (12) live in different states and have never met. They are both very intelligent and considered nerds among their peers. They met online and play Scrabble together. In Philadelphia, Charlotte struggles with her dad’s recent heart attack and the loss of her best and only friend. Ben, in Louisiana, has just learned his parents will divorce. He decides to run for student council, which is a long shot and gets bullied in the process. Since neither has a friend to turn to when they have problems, they begin to rely on their online friendship. Nightly phone calls provide the sounding board they each need to work through difficult issues.

Recommended Ages: Gr. 4-7

Plot Summary: Charlotte's best (and only) friend, is making other friends and other plans during lunch. Her dad is in the hospital and she feels horribly guilty about not going into the room to see him. She talks to Ben, a online friend, on the phone and they share their confessions, but they don't talk about what's really wrong. Ben has plenty of things to worry about too. His parents are getting a divorce and he decided to run for class treasurer. Only, his classmates think his campaign efforts are laughable and they're bullying him. Will they get through these hard times? How can they help each other when they live so far away from each other?

Setting: Charlotte lives in Philadelphia, PA, Ben lives in small town of Lanester, LA

Charlotte Lockhard - AKA Lottie Melody, 12 y/o, has older parents
Clayton Lockhard - Charlotte's dad, in the hospital after a heart attack, loves Scrabble and artwork, Charlotte hasn't visited him in the hospital and feels guilty about it
Ellen Lockhard - Charlotte's mom, spends a lot of time at the hospital, doesn't really talk to Charlotte
Ben Boxer - 11 y/o, doesn't seem to internalize that others are really being mean to him, tries hard to be strong and get over it, doesn't seem to understand why he's different than others
Delia and Stephen Boxer - getting divorced, let their son lock himself in his room and don't reach out to him in a significant way, Stephen is going to new apartment, Ben seems more upset with him but it's not really explained why other than he's the one leaving
Bridget - Charlotte's best friend, starting an art club during lunch without Charlotte, trying to distance herself from Charlotte because they don't have much in common, more boy crazy
Mateo Rivera - Charlotte's next door neighbor, popular and hot high school sophomore
Magda Rivera - AKA Mad Magda, Mateo's younger sister, in same grade as Charlotte, everyone thinks she's weird

Recurring Themes: loneliness, friendship, autism spectrum?, Scrabble, online friendships, divorce

Controversial Issues: none

Personal Thoughts: It was pretty good, but I think I wanted a little more. I didn't feel the devastation of the characters the way I might have if the author had really let us into their heads. I'm sure the characters had deep feelings but they weren't shared with the reader.

Genre: realistic fiction

Pacing: medium-slow
Characters: not deeply developed

Charlotte Lockard and Ben Boxer meet through online Scrabble, where they know each other as Lottie Lock and Ben Boot. Charlotte lives in the Philadelphia area, and her dad is in the hospital following a heart attack; her parents are much older than most of her peers' parents. Her best friend, Bridget, is beginning to drift away, wanting to belong to the popular clique, and Charlotte has no other friends. Ben is facing challenges at home and school as well: his parents have announced out of the blue that they're getting a divorce, and Ben has no friends at school after the shift from elementary to middle. In their first phone call, Ben wants to tell Charlotte about his parents' divorce, but instead he announces he's going to run for Student Council. Then he does - which leads to terrible humiliation, but also, finally, a new friend. Charlotte, who hasn't yet wanted to visit her father in the hospital, ditches school to go to the Philadelphia art museum, where her mom finds her to tell her her dad is awake and asking for her.

Even though Ben and Charlotte aren't honest with each other, they are a vital support for one another, and though they don't meet in person, they each end up with a new friend. The reader can see their similarities: both characters are exceedingly bright academically, and their parents love them but don't always understand them well (and vice versa). Middle school is a difficult, often painful time as friendships are lost, broken, or recalibrated, and kids may not have a close friend with whom to discuss problems at home or at school. Ben and Charlotte are there for each other, despite the fact that they don't confess everything, and that's enough.

I liked this better than Hello, Universe. See also: Doll Bones by Holly Black, Goodbye Stranger by Rebecca Stead


Middle school seemed like an endless aching game where everyone knew the rules but her. (Charlotte, 140)

Someday, I'll be digging for specimens in Egyptian pyramids and none of this will matter.
But for now, it did. (Charlotte, 182) ( )
