Roundtable Reading: One-Third Nerd by Gennifer Choldenko

Recommended for ages 8 & up (younger kids welcome as listeners)

  • Reading led by

    Suzy Mead is a librarian at Washington Elementary School in Berkeley.

Liam lives in the Bay Area with his mom and two younger sisters: Dakota, who is fascinated by science and has a big personality but struggles to make friends, and Izzy, a child with Down syndrome, who makes friends easily. Dad lives across town, but he’s over a lot. And then there’s Cupcake, their loveable German shepherd, who lately has a problem—she’s peeing in the house. Can the kids make enough money to take her to the vet before their landlord finds out and makes them get rid of her?
