Spring into Chapter Books with Geek Guardians

April 13, 2023

Encourage your child to read a chapter book this spring with Michael Fry’s Geek Guardians: Recess Revolution!  

Nick is the shortest seventh-grader in the history of the world (he’s pretty sure), he doesn’t fit in with any groups or clubs (who needs ’em?), and he spends more time inside than outside his locker (they’re roomier than you’d think).

“Funny and sweet, with a steely center.”

Neil Gaiman

Things only get worse when a well-intentioned guidance counselor forces Nick to join the school’s lamest club—along with fellow misfits Molly and Karl—in her quest to cure all three of their “peer allergies.” What starts off as a reluctant band of hopeless oddballs morphs into an effective and empowered team ready to face whatever middle school throws at them, including bullies, awkward romance, zany adults, and a brave new world of surprising friendships. Renowned cartoonist Michael Fry brings an unforgettable cast of characters to life in this illustrated novel brimming with honesty, humor, and heart.

Your child will enjoy this goofy story with equally entertaining illustrations. We hope this makes it into their reading plans this year!
