Loser by Jerry Spinelli

Donald Zinkoff is a loser. Follow his life from the first day of school through the 6th grade. Learn how this kid who is ostracized, teased and maligned maintains his self respect and dignity through the love of his family and love of life. I read this with a heavy heart, thinking of all the "losers" I've encountered as a child and as a teacher.
