What would you do if you knew that every couple of months you would have to start over in a new school? How do you think you would handle a new school, new students, new teacher and new bullies? Meet Chico and walk through another “first day”. You’ll see how hard it is to be “new” and understand how unsure he feels while trying to find a place to fit in. Find out how well Chico handles this new beginning.  (Jean B. Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2004-2005)
