The Looney Expirement is a book about difficulties, difficulties in life. And the victim of these difficulties, in this book, is Atticus Hobart. "He’s in love with a girl who doesn’t know he exists, he is the class bully’s personal punching bag, and to top it all off, his dad has just left the family." So how does he do it? How does he gain hope? How does he forge his voice? Along with the improvement in reading skills, I am certain this book would be able to help me recognize the secret of spreading hope to people who stand in a position similar to Atticus.
