​E.S. Pete: Sixth Grade Sense by Arnold Rudnick

E.S. Pete: Sixth Grade Sense is about the perils of a paranormal preteen.
Pete knew there would be a lot more homework in Sixth Grade, but he didn't plan on the reading list including the minds of his teachers and classmates. Knowing what they think can be helpful sometimes, but it also gets complicated -- ESPecially when Pete thinks the substitute teacher is planning a big robbery.

Oh, I loved reading this book.  However, since I work in a school setting I'm finding that they are becoming more and more sensitive to stories written about booms and shootings.  In this book these are the robbers two arms of defense.  I found the story good, but any talk of guns and things in schools isn't permitted these days.  I think before I put this in my classroom library I'll have to get it approved because of this one scene toward the end of the book.   Also I did notice about 4 or 5 times through out book the author used curse words.  (see my view of word choices here.)
