This year Kate was going to have the best birthday party.
The only trouble was her parents insisted she invite her whole class...
"I can't invite Violet," said Kate. "She's so bossy, she always wants everyone to do everything her way."
"Just boss her back," said Kate's dad.
Kate sighed. That was easy for her dad to say. No one could boss Violet back. Violet always got her way.

Excerpt

At recess, Stewart and I played catch. I forgot about Joe for a few minutes.
Then someone tapped me hard on my shoulder.
I spun around.
It was Joe.
"How's Dimples' little boo-boo?" he asked.
"Stop calling me that," I said.
"Now don't get so excited," he sneered. "It makes your face look like a tomato—a tomato with worm holes."

Excerpt

A ball bounced hard into his chest. Startled, Joseph glared at the thin, tall boy with cropped black hair who had thrown the ball.

"Gimme that ball," the boy barked in English..Joseph didn't understand the boy's words, but from the boy's tone and sneer, Joseph knew he wasn't apologizing.

"Watch where you throw," said Joseph, throwing the boy back his ball.

"Watch where you sit, greenie," the boy snarled back, this time in Yiddish.

For a minute both boys stared at each other. Then Joseph's face broke out into a smile. "I am a greenie now," he told the boy, "but soon I'll be a regular American. I catch on to things fast."

Excerpt

"Ohmygod! Is that what it said?"
I wondered what they were whispering about. I walked down the hall. Two girls who had been saying hi recently didn't say anything or even look at me. I suddenly felt invisible again.
I knew something was going on but what?
A crowd was milling around the lockers, talking and laughing, but as soon as I showed up, the noise stopped dead.
A few kids coughed. A few others snapped their lockers shut and left. One girl gave me a strange look, as if I had horns growing out of my head.
