Heidi Heckelbeck has always been homeschooled, but now she’s going to public school for the first time in second grade. And it is not a good experience. There’s a mean girl, a play she has to perform in even though she doesn’t want to, and already knowing what they are learning because her mother taught her at home. I think the Heidi Heckelbeck books would have been very useful for my middle son when he went to public school for the first time in second grade and hated every minute of the half year he attended. The end was extremely abrupt and left off on a cliffhanger which my boys and I did not like. I recommend this book to young readers ready for chapter books. Bonus if it’s a young reader transitioning from homeschooling to public school for the first time.
