Ages 8-12. Fuzzy perfectly captures all the things that make me both love and fear the walking talking robots of Science Fiction. When a robotics integration program comes to Max's middle school, Max is assigned to help "Fuzzy", adjust to school life.
It just so happens that Max is plagued by low test scores and discipline demerits--all given by the sketchy school supercomputer/vice principal "Barbara". When Fuzzy intercepts a transmission and sees that Max is actually a great student, Barbara is challenged for the first time--and Max finally has someone on her side.
Though Fuzzy takes place in a future of hover cars and sentient schools, the trials and tribulations of middle school will be relatable to even early 21st century kids

Ages 8-12. A first person exploration of the tradition of bacha posh, the Afghanistan tradition in which some famliies without sons choose a daughter to dress and act like a boy.
