Someday Angeline

Louis Sachar

Angeline is brilliant! She knows way more than a child of her age ought to. When she is moved up a class at school she finds that her intelligence doesn’t equip her entirely for dealing with the pressures of being with the older group. Soon she is finding refuge with a teacher and her tropical fish and another unlikely student. With Louis Sachar’s hallmark twist-and-turns of plot and lovely humour, this delightful novel is thought-provoking and brilliant.

Review

Louis Sachar is best known for his stand-out novel for young adults, Holes. In Someday Angeline, Sachar is writing for younger readers.

Angeline is an eight-year-old genius who is having trouble fitting in at school. Whats more, her father cant understand why his too-smart child is so fascinated by his job as a garbage collector and cant find a way to talk to her. No wonder our heroine is spending more time with fish in an aquarium than with fellow human beings. All this changes when Angeline makes a new friend at school (a boy!) and forms a connection with a teacher, who in turn forms a special friendship with her dad.

This is a sweet novel about learning to like yourself, even when you arent exactly the same as everybody else. For ages 8 up.
