Nothing But the Truth: A Documentary Novelby Avi
Synopses & Reviews
This Newbery Honor Book by acclaimed author Avi is available again through Scholastic--in an After Words paperback edition!
In this thought-provoking examination of freedom, patriotism, and respect, ninth-grader, Philip Malloy, is kept from joining the track team by his failing grades in English class. Convinced that the teacher just doesn't like him, Philip concocts a plan to get transferred out of her class. Breaking the school's policy of silence during the national anthem, he hums along, and ends up in a crisis at the center of the nation's attention.
