Some Day Angeline is about a genius in 6th grade that is supposed to be in 5th. She cries and sucks her thumb, but as we all know 6th graders don�t do that. Her dad is a garbage man and she wants to be just like him. But he doesn�t want her to be like him, but to have a good life as something big. In school she is a garbage lady but when she tells her dad he gets mad at her. She wishes her mom were here to tell him she could be a garbage lady, a job she likes, but her mom�s dead.
Angelina is not a normal genius- she knew everything before she was ever born. She knows what a beach looks like, but she has never been there to see it. She also knows fish that have not been found yet. Noboby likes her because she is smart. They think she is a freak.
One day a boy name Goon (he made that name himself) changes everything and introduces her to his teacher who helps her too. Angeline likes her a lot and wants to go to her class, but she doesn�t know if she can!!! I can�t tell you what happens because that would ruin. I can tell you that there are tons of jokes and the teacher is one of them. Oops! I shouldn�t have told you that, but who cares! Right? You will find out yourself, won�t you?
I think this is a great book - you should read it to see if you like it too. It would be really fun if I was that smart and could know about fish that have not been found yet! Thank you for reading. Bye!

This is my very favorite book! It is a wonderful story about being accepted in a community where we consider the "norm" to be the standard. Angeline is an eight year old "genius", and she has a very hard time fitting in... She is sent to a higher grade than she's supposed to be in, no one likes her, and ever her father doesn't know how to talk to her. If only he tried, he might discover that she is more normal than anyone imagines.
There are some things that Angeline knew before she was born. I find this a fun part of the book, because it leaves this unexplained... And lets you guess. If Mr. Sachar did explore into this more, I think it might have ruined the story. It is just one of those mysteries that makes you wonder. It also adds character to Angeline.
Angeline is "in balance with the whole". She understands things that others can't even perceive.
On the other hand, she wants to be accepted. She wants to be included. And it isn't until she meets a funny boy named Gary and his kind teacher, Miss Turbone (Mr. Bone) that she finds confidence in herself.
A beautiful story! I can't tell you how much I love it.
One thousand stars!!

You never know what to expect from a Louis Sachar book. The one thing you can always be sure of however is quality literature for young people that also appeals to adults. I have always been amazed at how this lawyer from California is able to weave elements of his stories together and not ignore the details. Little mysteries from the beginning of the story will make sense in the end.
Angeline is too smart for her own good and is not well like at school, until she meets a young boy who is sort of an outcast himself. The two of them befriend a teacher who befriends Angeline's father. The story was cute and I was able to relate Angeline and really felt for her. I did have 2 problems however.
First, Sachar routinely talks about the things Angeline knew before she was born because she was connected to the world, but he does not explore this topic as much as I would have liked, or expected. Also, I felt the suggested future romantic relationship between Angeline and Gary to be a little much considering she is only 8 years old. These are both small issues, but they did prevent the book from getting a five star rating.
Why 4 stars?:
With the exception of two flaws: 1 dealing with a concept not being explored fully, the other with content, this book was very enjoyable. It is not the most open for discussion of Sachar's works, but there is still plenty to talk about. I would recommend this book for intermediate students and their classrooms - it is already a part of mine.

I loved how Louis Sacher described Angeline's personality and life. I thought it was sweet that she could be anything from a layer to president, but she wanted to be a gar bage person like her father. I have read Wayside school books, but this was THE funniest of them all! I felt sorry for Angeline because she was laughed at for doing things that came natural to 8 year olds. Like, for example, sucking her thumb and being very emotional about every thing. I agree with Miss Turbone (a.k.a. Mr.Bone) when she said that if she had Mrs. Hardlick as a teacher, she'd go to the aquarium too. I rejoyced when Mellisa Turbone fell in love with Abel. Angeline deserved a mother. In my heart I know that they got married. I got worried when Angeline fell in the ocean and almost drowned. But, it WAS funny when she awoke in the hospital room to a joke. If I was Goon (Gary) I would have probably fainted when she said "What?". I loved this book with all of my heart. It is my third favorite book ever!! My first favorite is The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe. Look for my review on it! READ SOMEDAY ANGELINE!!!!!!
