At Spiro Agnew Elementary, the fifth graders rule the school. And class clown Justin Fisher rules them all.

Or, at least, he did.

Justin has always been the funniest kid in school. But this year, his new teacher isn't amused. And when Justin gets in trouble with Mr. Tripp over and over, the other kids turn on him, too. No one wants to be friends with the class troublemaker.

But Justin Fisher isn't going down without a fight.


"Along Came Spider is remarkable for its accurate and sympathetic portrayal of Asperger Syndrome, a real-life condition that's being diagnosed more and more among boys lately." ---Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

"Preller adeptly portrays the psychological and social dynamics of this age group, and Trey is realistic and sympathetic as a misfit . . .The pressures Spider feels from his peers to belong and conform will resonate with middle-grade readers." ---Kirkus Reviews

"By regularly switching points of view, Preller gives readers a chance to see the situation from each boy's angle and to consider the central insight that differences aren't always as important as they seem." ---Booklist
