Save Me a Seat by Sarah Weeks and Gita Varadarajan
June 12, 2018
Both Ravi and Joe have trouble fitting in at school. Ravi has just moved to America from India and is adjusting to a new culture. Joe has been around forever, but he has his own trouble making friends. Although the boys are very different, they share a common enemy and overcoming the influence of the class bully might be just the thing to create a lasting friendship.
Heartfelt and humorous, Save Me a Seat shows the struggle of navigating school when you feel ‘different.’ With the different perspectives of the two characters, readers can relate to universal feelings while gaining insight into some unique situations. This is a good read for both students who feel different as well as kids who fit right in.
