Charlie is dreading sixth grade because when he completes it, he’ll be older than his brother Andy who passed away recently. To make matters worse, right before school starts, Charlie finds that most of his friends have switched to different schools. Armstrong has found out he’ll be attending a new school as well, courtesy of the new Opportunity Busing Program – he’ll be joining Charlie’s formerly all-white school and both boys will have a tough time adjusting.
Armstrong & Charlie is one of those books that I greatly enjoyed and just can’t find the words in me for a good review. I hate when this happens because we all know I can rant for days about terrible books, yet there are times when I read something I would gladly recommend and I choke up! Ugh! -_-
