Listening to music stimulates many parts of the brain. Singing is a wonderful activity to do with children because they can easily join in by clapping, dancing, humming, or even singing nonsense words to the tune.
This novel-in-verse follows Nick, a boy who LOVES soccer and has a crush on April, a girl at his school. When a double-whammy comes up in his life in the form of his parents deciding to separate (with his mom moving away) and an emergency stay in the hospital, Nick struggles with staying calm and facing his fears. Nick wants things to be like they were before, but that isn’t an option anymore. If you enjoy lightning-fast reads that take place in a school setting, this one’s for you!
