In the first book in the Fitting Out series, meet Max where his story begins! A best friend makes school life MUCH easier when you're shy. But what happens when your best bro moves away?
10-year-old Max McConk has to figure out how to make new friends for the first time in his life and he has no idea how it all works. To make matters worse, he only has one month to do it before the new school year starts. YIKES!
In Fitting Out: The Friendship Experiment, Max uses the scientific method to test out different ways to find friends and discovers what works (and what TOTALLY doesn't!).
Despite some embarrassing and gut-wrenching missteps, Max musters the courage to put himself out there, exactly as he is, and discovers that the sweet reward of true acceptance may be worth the struggle.
Your kids who are shy or struggle with making friends are going to LOVE this relevant and helpful story.
