These brisk and humorous one-sentence examples of writing mistakes provide teachers with what are often called "daily oral language" exercises that help students master the basics of capitalization, mechanics, punctuation, and usage. Such quick mini-lessons can become boring when the sentence comes from another classroom subject such as science, but this book's punchy declarations get kids' attention and keep the focus on writing. Each exercise includes an at-a-glance summary of skills addressed, as well as quick ideas and tips to help students understand basic grammar concepts.

Fifth grade isn't exactly easy for eleven-year-old Taneesha Bey-Ross. For one thing, she's getting tired of being her best friend Carli Flanagan's personal bodyguard. Carli wears a leg brace and she's white, and when Taneesha does stand up for Carli in the face of a local bully--a giant of a girl with big fists and army boots--she's told to expect revenge. Taneesha's also running a loser's race for class president, and her love-hate interest Rayshaun has learned that Taneesha is a Buddhist, so now he's taunting her, saying that she's going to hell. Her mom may have told her that Taneesha's got heaven in her heart, but it doesn't feel that way. And just in case she forgets it, there's always Evella, Taneesha's evil imaginary twin, to remind her that she's a total failure. This beautifully written, fun, and instantly engaging novel presents vivid characters and a timely story about the big issues that every child faces.
