Fish in a Tree Kindle Edition
* Filled with a delightful range of quirky characters and told with heart, the story also explores themes of family, friendship, and courage in its many forms. . . . It has something to offer for a wide-ranging audience. . . . Offering hope to those who struggle academically and demonstrating that a disability does not equal stupidity, this is as unique as its heroine. Booklist, starred review
* Mullaly Hunt again paints a nuanced portrayal of a sensitive, smart girl struggling with circumstances beyond her control. . . . Ally s raw pain and depression are vividly rendered, while the diverse supporting cast feels fully developed. . . . Mr. Daniels is an inspirational educator whose warmth radiates off the page. Best of all, Mullaly Hunt eschews the unrealistic feel-good ending for one with hard work and small changes. Ally s journey is heartwarming but refreshingly devoid of schmaltz. School Library Journal, starred review
[Hunt s] depiction of Ally s learning struggles is relatable, and Ally s growth and relationships feel organic and real. Publishers Weekly
Poignant. . . . Emphasis on thinking outside the box . . . Ally s new friendships are satisfying, as are the recognition of her dyslexia and her renewed determination to read. Fans of R.J. Palacio s Wonder will appreciate this feel-good story of friendship and unconventional smarts.
Reminiscent of Polacco s wonderful Thank You, Mr. Falker. . . . Ally s feeling of loneliness and desire to fit in will resonate with young teen readers, as many share those feelings without the difficulty of dyslexia. . . . A tribute to teachers who go the extra mile to reach every student. . . . A touching story with an important message. Voice of Youth Advocates
Entertaining dialogue . . . Ally s descriptions of her mind movies are creative and witty. . . . The treatment of a group of sixth-graders with various quirks who face down their bullies extends the book s interest beyond the immediate focus on dyslexia. The Bulletin of the Center for Children s Books
Readers will . . . cheer for this likable girl.

Makes me feel cheated. Unfortunately I couldn’t return as I was out of town and by the time I returned and saw the book the return window had closed. Really disappointed at this
All children who struggle to keep up with their classes and don't fit in will relate to it.
A definite must-read for people of all ages.
