Lenny's Space Lenny's Space by Kate Banks

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a great portrayal of a great kid who just can't quite fit into his world. Assisted by a seemingly perfect school counselor, Lenny learns to deal with the world around him, and finds his own ways to interact with others. Most of the book fits smoothly into a child's voice and point of view. Only the first few pages comes off as awkward, when the author is trying to describe Lenny. "Lenny was mostly selfish, but there were occasions when he exhibited a generous spontaneity that was childlike and winning," A good read and a great book to recommend to kids who don't quite fit in.
