THE END of review thingie.
Bradley Chalkers---he is considered the "monster" in the book because he misbehaves, and he thinks he is a "monster" on the inside and the outside. His counselor, Carol, sees Bradley as the sweetest little boy deep inside himself. At first, Bradley doesn't want to listen to her, but then he does, and his life makes a beautiful transition. He is the person that he always was supposed to be. The likeable boy that everyone comes to adore.
"There's a Boy in the Girl's Bathroom" is a story about a little boy that changes. It touches me so much because in that 195 page you see Bradley change into the person that he was meant to be. I was feeling bad yesterday, but when I read that it makes me realize that if Bradley Chalkers, a fifth grader, can change his life so young, we all can too. It feels good to know that we can all grow and mature with a little help for people who care about us.
If you like books about people who work hard to overcome personal challenges, this is the one for you! This beautifully written story is sincerely touching.

Bradley was to see a councilor, at first he refused but eventually agreed, he was extremely rude to her, Jeff also saw the councilor to help him settle into school, Bradley was rude to some girls but they beat him up, he said it was Jeff, Jeff had to go to the head and explain, there is to be a Birthday party Jeff was invited but bradley was not
Bradley hated his life and comes to the decision to be nice to everybody, he is desperate for people to like him but has he gone to far
But soon a new kid, Jeff Fishkin, joins the school. He sits next to Bradley, and he likes him, or at least he says he does. But this is a small part of the book, yet important.
Carla Davis is the pretty young counselor. She has watery blue eyes and blonde hair. Bradley Chalkers has too see her. Soon the unlikely pair form a bond. Bradley Chalkers sees her in her office whenever now, and his school life slowly improves. He stops tearing books, makes friends.
But Carla has to leave, and while Bradley is sad, she has done lasting good.
I really liked this book. It was funny and I had my head stick in it. While the ending was sad and I felt like I was Bradley Chalkers, saying bye to Carla Davis, I was pleased with the outcome and wished all the characters the best.
It's not a hard book to read, but due to the context (nothing horrible) I would recommend to nine years and older. Maybe the oldest you should be is fourteen-year-old. The chapters are quick so one to two chapters are good for quick reading in minutes.
I loved it! A must by for all kids.
Bradley was to see a councilor or else! He was really rude to her. Jeff also saw the councilor to help him settle into school. Jeff goes in the girls bathroom by accident and feels mortified! Bradley said he does that all the time just to bother the girls so they become friends. Bradley was afraid as he had no other friends.
A girl beat Bradley up, people thought it had been Jeff so Jeff became some sort of celebrity at school and made lots of friends.
Bradley hated his life, his family and school. But then he tries to be nice and do his school work to be noticed, it backfired at first but things turned...
