On the first day of grade three, Owen’s teacher assigns a year-long writing activity called Project Awesome. Every week, the students need to write about something awesome in their everyday life.
It doesn’t sound awesome to Owen. He hates writing and would rather be skateboarding or playing soccer with his best friend Max, or spending time with Copper, the elderly neighbour’s dog.
But things don’t always go according to plan. When Max stops hanging around and Copper goes away for vacation, Owen turns to his journal entries, as an outlet for some of his thoughts about the world around him. Is it possible that Project Awesome isn’t as lame as he thought?
This author is very experienced with the early chapter book genre and has produced another school story to which readers can relate.”
