The Report Card

The Report Card

A fifth-grade genius turns the spotlight on grades - good and bad - in this novel from Andrew Clements, the author of Frindle.

Nora Rose Rowley is a genius, but don't tell anyone. She's managed to make it to the fifth grade without anyone figuring out that she's not just an ordinary kid, and she wants to keep it that way.

But then Nora gets fed up with the importance everyone attaches to test scores and grades, and she purposely brings home a terrible report card just to prove a point. Suddenly the attention she's successfully avoided all her life is focused on her, and her secret is out. And that's when things start to get really complicated....

    Clements is a great youth storyteller. I have found his stories to be humorous and thought provoking. In this tale he questions state testing, the importance that as an American society we put on grad...

    The book The Report Card was an okay book. It was an okay book because when I got it I thought it was going to about someone getting bad grades all the time. This book takes place at Nora's school an...

    This story keys into my own personal bugbear: standardized testing. It's about more than that, but the standardized testing is what has annoyed me since I was a kid and all the way up to college. It's...

    I have tried to read this book so many times in middle school and never got past the first chapter. The problem wasn't that it was boring, it was just strange to me. Now that I'm a sophomore in highsc...
