Description

The middle years can be tough, especially when you feel like you don't quite fit in. 

Meet Eva... an artist with a unique style! She loves exploring new art forms, and she really enjoys crafts. People often compliment Eva on her artwork!

But when Eva looks around at school and in her neighborhood, she sees most people dress similarly and enjoy the same kinds of outdoor, sporty activities. When the other girls at school gather, they tolerate Eva but they sometimes snipe and gossip about things that make her uncomfortable. It just doesn't appeal to Eva, and she wonders... AM I WEIRD?

Luckily, Eva has a best friend, Isaiah, and an understanding mom who are there to remind her that everyone is different, and as long as she is kind and caring toward others, she can be true to herself and be happy.

This quick-read chapter book is part of the Navigating Friendships series, which is great for students in grades 4 through 7 who are struggling with changing friendships, learning about self-advocacy, and figuring out how to get along with others. 40 pgs.

Extend the learning with the Teacher and Counselor Activity Guide designed to accompany the chapter book!
