Fish in a Tree
Ally has always been able to hide her inability to read by creating clever yet disruptive distractions. She is afraid to ask for help because she doesn't think dumb can be cured. However, Ally's newest teacher sees the bright kid beneath the troublemaker and helps to shine a light on her gifts. As her confidence grows, Ally gets to know other kids who break the mold, and surprising things begin to happen in Ally's classroom that show her there's a lot more to her--and to everyone--than a label.
