Ethan Marcus Stands Up by Michele Weber Hurwitz

Ethan Marcus Stands Up - Michele Weber Hurwitz

Audience: 3rd Grade & Up

Format: Hardcover/Library copy

 

The thing about this, and what I seriously don’t get here, is that it was Ethan.

– first sentence

 

Ethan is a 7th grader who has difficulty sitting still in school all day. One day, during his last period (Language Arts), he stands up and refuses to sit down despite repeated warnings from his teacher. As a result, he receives two days of after school reflection (aka detention). This begins a series of events that ends with Ethan and his sister (Erin) both competing in the Invention Day fair. The story is told from 5 different points of view – Ethan, his best friend Brian, Erin, her best friend Zoe, and troublemaker Wesley (who may not be as bad as he seems). 

The story is a quick, easy read that is appropriate for kids even in 3rd grade – nothing too heavy or serious and a lot of humor will appeal to students who enjoy books like James Patterson’s Middle School series.
