In this video I review (and complain a bit about) Pay Attention, Carter Jones by Gary D. Schmidt. Pay Attention, Carter Jones is a realistic fiction book featuring a middle school-aged boy whose already turbulent family life gets turned upside down by the arrival of a butler. There are touching moments, lessons learned, cricket played, and quite a lot of absurdity. I hope you’ll try some of Gary D. Schmidt’s other books such as Okay for Now or Orbiting Jupiter!
