Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: “Middle school readers will easily relate to the situational humor and school life, but everyone should read this book for its message. The Bubble Wrap Boy is perfect for fans of R.J. Palacio’s Wonder and will be an excellent addition to any library or classroom.” —VOYA
 
A funny and inspiring novel about friendship, family, and one undersized boy’s ability to think BIG.
 
Charlie Han’s troubles are much bigger than he is. At school he’s branded an outsider, a loser—the tiny kid from the Chinese takeout. His only ally is Sinus Sedgely, a kid with a lower-level reputation than Charlie himself. Life at home isn’t much better. His dad is more skilled with a wok than he is with words, and his mom is suffocating the life out of Charlie, worried about his every move. But when a new passion leads Charlie to the mother of all confrontations, he finds his real mom has been hiding a massive secret. A secret that, while shocking, might actually lead Charlie to feeling ten feet tall.
 
“Charlie is a character to root for. He is witty and perceptive and has a secret weapon in his best friend, Sinus Sedgely.” —Booklist
 
“Family drama with a solid mix of action, adventure, and humor.” —School Library Journal
 
“In the fast-growing bullying genre, Charlie’s story stands out.” —Kirkus Reviews
 
“Charlie’s amusing sarcasm masks a vulnerability that will resonate with anyone who has felt like an outsider. The humiliation of being the butt of a joke is sensitively rendered, as is Charlie’s slow reclamation of his pride in this witty, true-to-life story.” —Publishers Weekly
