Bradley is a very bad kid, he doesn't have friends, and sits in the last seat in the last row of his class. No one likes him, infact the ones who aren't scared of him, tease him. Bradley's life changes when a boy moves into the class. They don't start off that well but soon become fast friends. As the story progresses, Bradley is going to counciling with a very CALM counciler. Bradley struggles to become accepted and soon learns that the counciler must leave because she is fired. ...
This is a heart-warming story that will have you turning pages and not want to stop. Bradley's atitude against the coucelor is tough in the beggining but as he continues seeing her he grows to love her. I highly recomend this for 5-8 graders. It's a light, quick read...and you might even be rereading it!
"There's a Boy in the Girls' Bathroom" is vintage Sachar. This time, he takes us into the life and mind of Bradley Chalkers, who wins our hearts almost immediately despite being a poster child for bad behavior: he destroys school property, bullies his classmates, lies almost as often as he opens his mouth, and refuses to do homework on principle. In the privacy of his bedroom, Bradley turns out to be a surprisingly sensitive boy whose only friends are his collection of toy animals, with whom he engages in a sort of spontaneous play therapy. As the novel begins, Bradley ventures upon a tentative friendship with the new boy in school, but it's only when his teacher convinces his mother to send Bradley to the school counselor that he really starts to turn his life around. The counselor, Carla (named after and patterned on Sachar's own wife, to whom the book is dedicated), is young, pretty, upbeat, and unconventional, and in addition to helping Bradley explore the reasons he makes the choices he does, she quickly becomes his first crush.Read more ›
There are so many emotions, and Bradley is practically a real life kid. Louis Sachar is one of the most talented and original authors today.
There's A Boy In The Girl's Bathroom will touch you, even if you're a tough one---like Bradley. He's a "monster", he knows he is. Until Carla, the new school councellor, comes along and shows him that he can change. Even when no one else thinks he can---even when he himself doesn't believe he can ever be anything else.
(Just don't be mislead by the title or anything. The book's not really exactly about a boy in the girl's bathroom. Louis Sachar is one of the best writers in the world, but I've found the he isn't all that great at picking out titles for his stories.)
And, by the way, very few books can really make a person actually laugh. Louis Sachar has the gift of humor, and adds entertainment and fun to this book.
You should definetly read it.
