“Rhyme Schemer”

Rhyme Schemer by K.A. Holt is middle-grade fiction. This novel in verse stars Kevin, a bully, who terrorizes his classmates physically and verbally. Of course, he is always in trouble. Along the way Kevin himself is a victim to his older brothers who are nasty to him. His redeeming quality is poetry, however, he likes to tear out pages of library books and use them for his writing paper. When Kevin gets suspended, he becomes the victim of a bully and feels cornered: who will care or believe him since his reputation precedes him? The school librarian sees through to his literary soul and encourages his gift. A short, entertaining read.
