STANDING FOR SOCKS is the quirky and fun tale of Tara, a sixth grader who makes a statement. This book shows the reality of middle school - one little nuance and you could be branded for life.

In Tara's case, wearing mismatched socks opens up a whole can of worms.

At first a statement of personality and individuality, it soon inspires her to run for student council president, a goal many kids today would not be confident enough to aspire to.

This is truly a cute story about making a difference. It is real and fresh, and I really enjoyed reading it, as I could relate to a lot of the events in the tale. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a light, enjoyable read.
