The Benefits of Being an Octopus by Ann Braden

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐✰

7th grader Zoey has not had an easy life. In addition to going to school, she also has to spend much of her time taking care of her three small siblings while living in the trailer of her mom's boyfriend, Lenny.

One of Zoey's teachers sees something in her that reminds her of herself and encourages Zoey to join the debate club so she can learn to find her voice and to stand up for what she believes in. 

A beautiful story that teaches the importance of family, friends, standing up for both, and loads of fun facts about Octopuses.

Perfect for grades 6 and up.
