Un pesce sull’albero è un romanzo super positivo su una ragazzina, Ally, che tra le varie cose ha la dislessia. Questo le rende la vita scolastica un inferno, tra bullismo e incomprensione da parte della docente e della preside, almeno finché non arriva un nuovo insegnante in grado di accorgersi che Ally ha bisogno di seguire un percorso di apprendimento diverso.

Ho adorato Un pesce sull’albero per la sua comprensione e il suo supporto a ogni tipo di esigenza o peculiarità possa possedere ogni bambinu di una classe. È un libro sul come si sta insieme pur essendo molto diversu, su quanto sia tossico il bullismo, su quanto la violenza sia sbagliata a meno che non sia per difesa (e anche in quel caso meglio non esagerare).

Inoltre, nonostante mostri tutta la bruttura del mondo, rimane un libro molto positivo e anche divertente: impossibile non girare l’ultima pagina con un senso di serenità nel cuore. A dispetto di tutto c’è ancora speranza.

L’unico aspetto che non mi ha convinto troppo è stato il programma scolastico, che da quello che emerge mi è sembrato molto irrealistico per quella che nel sistema scolastico italiano è la prima media. È possibile che le differenze siano davvero così marcate, visto che alla fine del romanzo Mullay Hunt mi informa che Un pesce sull’albero ha preso spunto dalla sua stessa esperienza scolastica. Però alla mia mente ha dato sensazioni di semplificazione eccessiva e non mi ha fatto impazzire. ( )

Ally Nickerson has been in 7 schools during the last 7 years. She has learned many survival skills to cover up the fact that she can not read or write like her peers. Her current teacher (who Ally is sure does not like her at all) goes on maternity leave and the substitute teacher gets to know Ally. He is able to find those things that Ally is really good at (math!) Ally also fiends a group of friends, who are often referred to as the misfits, but they form a solid friend group.

Hunt draws a portrait of dyslexia and getting along.

Ally Nickerson, who’s passed through seven schools in seven years, maintains a Sketchbook of Impossible Things. A snowman in a furnace factory is more plausible than imagining herself doing something right—like reading. She doesn't know why, but letters dance and give her headaches. Her acting out to disguise her difficulty causes headaches for her teachers, who, oddly, never consider dyslexia, even though each notices signs like inconsistent spellings of the same word. Ally's confusion is poignant when misunderstandings like an unintentional sympathy card for a pregnant teacher make her good intentions backfire, and readers will sympathize as she copes with the class "mean girls." When a creative new teacher, Mr. Daniels, steps in, the plot turns more uplifting but also metaphor-heavy; a coin with a valuable flaw, cupcakes with hidden letters, mystery boxes and references to the Island of Misfit Toys somewhat belabor the messages that things aren't always what they seem and everyone is smart in their own ways. Despite emphasis on "thinking outside the box," characters are occasionally stereotypical—a snob, a brainiac, an unorthodox teacher—but Ally's new friendships are satisfying, as are the recognition of her dyslexia and her renewed determination to read.

Fans of R.J. Palacio's Wonder (2012) will appreciate this feel-good story of friendship and unconventional smarts. (Fiction. 10-12)

I liked the premise of this book a lot, but I think I would have liked it a lot more if I'd read it rather than listened to the audiobook. The audiobook was fine, but sometimes it made the characters seem more like caricatures of people rather than fully developed characters. There were just some moments when their dialogue didn't seem like what a kid would actually say. That said, it's still definitely a book worth reading. Great underdog story about learning to believe in yourself and not let other people's opinions (or what you THINK other people's opinions are) have an impact on how you see yourself. ( )

For teachers...who see the child before the student, who remind us that we all have special gifts to offer the world, who foster the importance of standing out rather than fitting in.  And for the kids...who find their grit to conquer life's challenges--no matter what those challenges may be.  You are heroes.  This book is for you.
