I think this is a great easy read for 3 5th graders Phillip leaves the only world he's ever known circus life to become a normal 6th grader in a town obsessed with dodgeball Surrounded by challenges he doesn't always understand he doesn't always make the smart choices How will he survive in this new world? It was okay I can see that some kids would really enjoy it though It was an easy read I didn't like the part when Phillip had to go to court for things that didn't matter Overall I thought it was dumb It has been a long time since I have read it IT IS FUNNY AND KEPT MY INTEREST
