Finding the Worm (Twerp Sequel)

We rated this book:


Julian Twerski, a.k.a. the Twerp, is back and he’s in trouble again. He’s in a new school (he’s in seventh grade now), but trouble seems to find him. He is unjustly accused of damaging a painting, a painting he really loves, and the principal assigns him a two-hundred-word essay on citizenship. This is the beginning of a year-long duel between the two. But that isn’t all that is going on. Quentin, one of Julian’s gang (not a bad gang) is really sick. Devlin, a ninth-grader, seems to have it in for Julian. Beverly is acting funny and challenges Julian to races all the time. Julian is getting ready for his Bar Mitzvah, and the Rabbi is giving him trouble.

There is never a dull moment in this wonderful book. Mark Goldblatt has created a cast of characters in this sequel to Twerp that take the reader directly to the Queens, New York, of the 1960s and bring this touching, funny story to life. Readers will walk with Julian through his seventh-grade year as he suffers great loss and becomes a man, as he discovers many kinds of love, and as he meets a life-long idol. Don’t miss this amazing book.
