In this acclaimed novel by the author of the award-winning, bestselling The Thing About Jellyfish, being the new kid at school isn't easy, especially when you have to follow in the footsteps of a legendary classroom prankster. When Caitlyn Breen begins her disorienting new life at Mitchell School--where the students take care of real live goats and study long-dead philosophers, and where there are only ten other students in the entire seventh grade--it seems like nobody can stop talking about some kid named Paulie Fink. Depending on whom you ask, Paulie was either a hilarious class clown, a relentless troublemaker, a hapless klutz, or an evil genius. One thing's for sure, though: The kid was totally legendary. Now he's disappeared, and Caitlyn finds herself leading a reality-show-style competition to find the school's next great Paulie Fink. With each challenge, Caitlyn struggles to understand a person she never met...but it's what she discovers about herself that most surprises her. Told in multiple voices, interviews, and documents, this funny, thought-provoking novel from the bestselling author of The Thing About Jellyfish is a memorable exploration of what makes a hero--and if anyone, or anything, is truly what it seems.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Ali BenjaminPublisher: Little, Brown Books for Young ReadersPublished: 04/16/2019ISBN: 9780316380881Pages: 368Weight: 0.90lbsSize: 7.90h x 5.60w x 1.20dReview Citations: School Library Journal 02/01/2019 pg. 57Kirkus Reviews 01/15/2019 pg. 82Booklist 03/01/2019 pg. 56Bulletin of Ctr for Child Bks 04/01/2019Horn Book Magazine 05/01/2019 pg. 137Shelf Awareness 04/30/2019Hornbook Guide to Children 07/01/2019 - Superior,Well Above AverageAccelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 500764 / Next Great Paulie FinkReading Level: 4.9 / Interest Level: Middle Grade / Point Value: 9
