The Next Great Paulie Fink is a surprisingly great book. It's about Caitlyn, a 7th grader who is being forced to move to a new school in Mitchell, Vermont. She desperately misses her old friends and worries about adapting to her new school. However, her new school is weird, crazy, and definitely unusual. Her entire grade comprises of 10 odd kids, ranging from the girl who always wears pantsuits to the twin boys who play a crazy pretend game. All of them are shocked that Paulie Fink, the hilarious class clown, is no longer in their school. Caitlyn can't stand her school, but as she learns about Paulie Fink's wild pranks and her classmates, she begins to open up and enjoy it. It doesn't end there, though, because her classmates want to find their new Paulie Fink, and they pick Caitlyn as their judge. Through the crazy adventures, the engaging ending, and the amazing writing, this book deserves all five stars. The front cover itself shows how crazy and interesting the book is!
