Absolutely Almost by Lisa Graff
Albie has difficulty at school with learning and making friends. Despite well-meaning teachers, he is bullied at school. His parents and Korean grandfather put pressure on him to succeed. He makes friends with Betsy who is bullied as well.
Absolutely Almost by Lisa Graff is a book I'm considering as a read aloud this year. Although I teach gifted students, I believe they will have empathy for Albie.
