Springstubb's story is all about the small daily dramas of family and friendship as seen through the eyes of young Cody. Narrator Ross does well imbuing these moments with Cody's youthful high emotions: abandonment, when her brother starts paying less attention to her; regret, when her friend talks her into trading away a treasured toy. Ross effectively conveys the strangeness of a first sleepover away from one's own night-light, the violation felt when Cody is a victim of petty theft, compared to the surprising revelation that the class mean girl has feelings of her own. Ross is particularly skillful when voicing the male characters, deftly showing teen infatuation and the father's concern and empathy. Cody's strict but caring teacher is voiced well; the joy when he allows Cody to break one of his rules is smile inducing. Fans of realistic fiction like Beverly Cleary's Ramona books or Sara Pennypacker's Clementine series will find much to appreciate about Cody. Grades 2-4. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
