Zap by Paul Fleischman

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2016-04-22) Good Permalink

This book will be best suited towards older kids, as it can get very confusing. It is written as a play - actually 7 plays in one. It gets a little crazy when the characters end up in each others plays, but it is quite fascinating to see how it all turns out. Might be kind of fun for a theater class...
