Every day until Christmas Eve, stock team member and book expert Jo Dixon will recommend a great title for children. Today’s book is Word Nerd, by Susin Nielsen.

Word Nerd

“12-year-old Ambrose is a glass-half-full kind of guy. A self-described ‘friendless nerd,’ he moves from place to place every couple of years with his overprotective mother, Irene. When some bullies at his new school almost kill him by slipping a peanut into his sandwich, Ambrose is philosophical.”
