Rhyme Schemer by K.A. Holt


Kevin Johnson (13) does not fit in with a home full of doctors and older brothers. He starts making fun of his classmates and begins to act out in middle school, which lands him in the principal's office. Kevin also secretly rips out pages from library books and writes poems using the words on the page. One day Robin blackmails Kevin by stealing his writer's journal and repays Kevin for his prior mistreatment. With the tides turned, Kevin ends up hiding in the library and Mrs. Little discovers his talent in poetry writing. Will Mrs. Little help Kevin and Robin work out their differences? I was pulling for Kevin as he was bullied by one of his brothers, and I really loved the librarian too! Rhyme Schemer is written as a novel in verse and will be a quick read.  JA
