Jack Adrift: Fourth Grade Without a Clue

Jack Gantos, Author Farrar Straus Giroux $16.99 (208p) ISBN 978-0-374-39987-0
Jack Gantos continues the Jack Henry Books (Jack on the Tracks; Heads or Tails) with Jack Adrift: Fourth Grade Without a Clue. Jack's father rejoins the Navy and the family relocates from their home just south of Pittsburgh, Pa., to Cape Hatteras, N.C. On the car ride south, Jack solicits advice from his parents on how to make friends, and their contradictory advice (""Tell [people] what they want to hear,"" says Dad; ""Always be yourself,"" Mom says) sets the stage for a series of conflicts for the nine-year-old, who develops a crush on his teacher, and reluctantly winds up a stool pigeon for the principal.
