The Junk Yard Wonders by Patricia Polacco

Do you know anyone with special needs?  Well Trisha does. She has trouble with reading and is devastated when she finds out that she is in a special needs class.  Everyone in her class has something wrong with them.  One kid grows to fast and one kid can barely see. Trisha just might find the good in these troubled kids. Find out in the book The Junk Yard Wonders by Patricia Polacco.  I would rate this book 4 stars and I would reccomand this book to people who love a sad story that can warm your heart .
