Extra Credit


This is just another awesome book by Andrew Clements!!! Extra Credit-The title says it all! A girl, Abby Carson is failing 6th grade. She has to get a B or better on every test for the rest of the school year! But even that won't cut it! Abby needs Extra Credit! She decided to write to a girl in Kabul,Afghanistan! The girls' name is Amira. She isn't awesome at English so her older, smarter brother Sadeed helps write the letters. Their conversations are about planting to mountains to family troubles. Will this letter writing be enough to get Abby Carson to 7th grade? Read this awesome book to find out!
