Published by Nancy Paulsen Books, an imprint of Penguin Group LLC. “Everybody is a genius . But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” – Albert Einstein.”  Sixth-grader, Ally, has been clever in covering up her inability to read.
