It's My School: 07/25/15

It's My School by Sally Grindley attempts to outline the evolution of the utopian / dystopian dichotomy through a lengthy historical outline from More's book onward through some modern classics..

It's My School by Sally Grindley is about that time when the younger sibling is heading off to school in the older sibling's footsteps.

Tim loves going to school. It's his chance to get away from his pesky baby sister. But now Alice is old enough for elementary school and Tom doesn't want her blowing his carefully crafted reputation.

Um yeah — so here's a book about an older brother having to learn how to get over his own self importance. He does this eventually by stopping a bully from bothering Alice. But the reality of school is that the different grades pretty much go in their own circles — unless it's a one room schoolhouse.

Three stars
