Book Review: Biggie by Derek E. Sullivan

I wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading this book.  I like the cover and blurb but I wondered how it that would translate into an entire book.  Consider me impressed.  This debut novel by Derek E. Sullivan examines what it's like to be Henry Abbot; the BIGGEST kid in your school (and the son of local baseball legend).  I finished the book in one sitting and wish there were more to read; that is always a great feeling to have when finishing a book!  

I particularly liked following Henry's growth over the course of the book as he ponders being healthier and having a healthier mindset.  I look forward to adding Biggie to my classroom library and recommend this book to those looking for an enjoyable and engaging read.  

Note: I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
