An Afternoon Center? What's that? Mitchell McCabe who has trouble remembering things has just begun the first week of school and is watching the clock on the classroom wall very closely. As he charges out the door at last, a sixth grader named Peter Petway, yells out, "Hey, loser." Gee, does Peter Petway think he is a loser? Things go down hill fast. Bumping into pictures, banging his head on a shelf, breaking Angela's class project, a castle are just a few. Now it's time for Afternoon Center down in the school basement. As each day at the Afternoon Center comes and goes, it seems everyone is winning a prize except Mitchell. Is Mitchell really a loser? Is he good at anything? This great independent reader series is perfect for kids who love to read about what the other guy. Touches of humor and a voice that rings true make this first in the series another of Patricia Giff's gifts to our young readers. Ages 5-8 80 pages
