Chasing Vermeer

A kid's book. I read it to see if I thought it was appropriate for my 9-year-old son. I concluded he's not ready for it. I did not love the political correctness of the main characters. And maybe my mind just doesn't work like these kids. I still don't understand pentominos. I think I also might have enjoyed it more had I not read other Vermeer related fiction. Maybe it's a good book for a kid who doesn't feel he quite fits in, but in 3rd grade everyone is still friends, so I'll hold off on introducing it into our family reading.
