"A distinctive new voice: Rex Ogle's story of starting middle school on the free lunch program is timely, heartbreaking, and true. Free Lunch is the story of Rex Ogle's first semester in sixth grade. Rex and his baby brother often went hungry, wore secondhand clothes, and were short of school supplies, and Rex was on his school's free lunch program. Grounded in the immediacy of physical hunger and the humiliation of having to announce it every day in the school lunch line, Rex's is a compelling story of a more profound hunger -- that of a child for his parents' love and care. Compulsively readable, beautifully crafted, and authentically told with the voice and point of view of a 6th-grade kid, Free Lunch is a remarkable debut by a gifted storyteller"--… (mer)

One of the best books I have read this year. Recommend by the Project Lit Community. Heart wenching but a smooth read and I would highly recommend to 5th graders and up on the topic of poverty, bullying, abuse, school, etc. FYI triggers on abuse in this book. Happy ending for those that need to know before embarking on this journey. ( )

RGG: Mature, intense, not sugar coated representation of the experience of living with the stress of childhood poverty. Concerning though that the physical abuse perpetrated between adults and on the author is described but not mediated. Also the improvement in the family's financial situation seems to miraculously improve the psychological trauma the family has suffered. Reading Interest: 11-14.

This book broke my heart. Free Lunch should be required reading for everyone who works with kids. ( )

Rex Ogle starts 6th grade on a hopeful note because he can forget about his home life while at school. Its a disappointing start of the year, though, because everyday when he gets to lunch, the lunch lady forgets his name and those nearby hear he is on the free lunch program. He loses his old friends when they take up football and sit with the team and he can't, and one of his teachers always gives him a hard time because he is Hispanic and poor. Rex does his best to take care of his toddler brother, make supper and keep things together at home as his mom and her boyfriend and Rex live in a circle of abuse and poverty. Rex is embarrassed that someone will find out the truth of his home life, as he wishes he just had a normal life like everyone else, one in which he is never hungry. A thought provoking read, that could be somewhat upsetting to some sensitive individuals. Based on the author's life. gr. 4-7 ( )
