The Only Girl in School by Natalie Standiford
Claire is not looking forward to her fifth grade year now that she is the only girl in the entire school. She knows she is going to be out of place with all those boys. It turns out to worse than she expected as her former best friend now won't have anything to do with her and the other boys all pick on her as the only girl. Will she be able to survive the school year?
This was an interesting story. While it is completely unbelievable that a school would have 70 boys and only one girl, it was a good look at gender relations of kids. It was a very easy read and I think both boys and girls would enjoy this story.
