This book was sent to me for review. Since it was written for pre-teens, I turned it over to my 9-year-old son. Here is his review:

The title of this book is Bifocal. The authors are Deborah Ellis and Eric Walters. Bifocal is a tale about people who are different from each other.

The book is about two boys, Jay and Haroon. Jay is a boy who plays football and is the new kid at school. Haroon is a school quiz show contestant who is accidentally arrested for being a terrorist. Bifocal tells how these two very different boys meet and become friends.

I liked this book because it was exciting and thought-provoking. One of the most exciting parts is when Jay and his friends throw eggs, tomatoes, and toilet paper at some houses. The thought-provoking part of this book is how the two boys have different religions and are different in many other ways.

I recommend this book because I’m sure you’ll love it. The reason I like Bifocal is because it has action all the way through it. It teaches a good lesson that even though people are different, they can still be friends. The book is good for ages 10 to 14.

Thanks for the review! With so many titles out there for this age group, it's hard to know which ones are good. This sounds like one my daughter might like. :)

I love this book. It’s my favourite and I would recommend it to all age groups not just young teens, because everyone could learn something from this book.
