The Bubble Wrap Boy by Phil Earle

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.Bubble Wrap Boy is a funny and inspiring novel about friendship, family, and one undersized boy's ability to think BIG.

Trina N., congratulations on your new book. Stay tuned as we will have more contests, not just our random drawings in the weeks ahead.
