    1. YA Adventure Hits the MarkEleven-year-old Josh has a problem: he can’t read. Despite the tutors, letters won’t come together: “It was like wading through the mud in his rubber boots at low tide.” And his parents have split. He’s on Vancouver Island with his boat-building dad, and his mother’s in Toronto with his older brother Matt. While he’s adjusted to living on a schooner on the Canadian west coast, he’d rather be sailing: “In a breeze like that, Nomad would be flying. He co [...]

Both of my children took the book to their classroom teacher to read and then also to the school librarian. All elementary and middle school libraries need to have this book available.

    3. While Prove It Josh would be an inspiration to any child who, like dyslexic Josh, is struggling to overcome a physical or social obstacle, it is also an exciting story of a sailing race, new friendships and the good feelings generated by doing the right thingThe author keeps the plot moving from the very beginning with intriguing hooks at the end of every chapter and by continuously raising the stakes for Josh and his new friend, Dakota. Josh has just moved to the west coast to live on a boat wi [...]

    4. I really enjoyed this story. The characters are interesting, the story is suspenseful, and the ending is unexpected but satisfying!I definitely recommend it for any age, though children 9-12 may find it particularly engaging.

    5. Josh is a determined kid. He’s determined to win the bet, to win the race, and to win over his inability to read. But more importantly, Josh is determined to do the right thing.Just in from Toronto, Josh is the new and weird kid on the block, and the cool kids in the class make it clear he is going to have to earn their acceptance, the hard way. It feels like everything conspires to go wrong after Josh is goaded into making a bet on winning the Senanus Island Small Boat Race with his small sai [...]

    6. Prove It, Josh is a book that will resonate with any reader who has ever been the "new kid." Not only is Josh adjusting to a new school and life with his dad, he is also struggling with dyslexia. The author, Jenny Watson, has handled the subject with a gentle touch that leaves the reader cheering Josh on, but not feeling sorry for him in any way. It shows that although Josh has trouble in one area, that doesn't mean he doesn't excel in others. He is a skilled sailor, and the story weaves its way [...]

    7. Prove It, Josh is an accessible read for a struggling reader like Josh--not too long, fewer words per page, and short chapters. Jenny Watson has a gift for crafting realistic, believable characters. She also has a knack for using just the right amount of sailing terminology in context to flavour the story but not frustrate the reader. I love the ending, but you'll have to read the book to find out.

    8. A book which graphically demonstrates the humiliation of negative peer judgement, the value of adult mentorship and true peer friendships, and the value of choosing the morally correct action over the drive to win at all costs. Jenny subtly introduces her young readers to the potential magic of the Ransome series, and clarifies the issue of dyslexia, all within a lovely setting of boats and the sea.

    9. This is a really interesting book. I just started at a new school, and I am having trouble adapting to a new environment and friends. I would be very delighted to get a copy of this book so I can read about Josh's experience and compare the similarity of our current situation, and learn how he overcome this matter.

    10. Disclaimer: I know the author in real life.But that doesn't stop me from highly recommending Prove It, Josh. It pulls you along at a good pace. Jenny nails the age group and has a straightforward writing style that makes her struggling protagonist feel very real. The world of sailboats is a special bonus. Boy-reader worthy, for sure.

    11. Josh struggles with dyslexia but his passion for sailing drives him to bet a race against having to read out loud at the library as punishment if he loses against rich girl/bully. Fast, easy read with a good pace and satisfying finish.

    12. This story was a wonderful adventure about mending family ties and making new friends when life takes you to the other side of the country where you are compelled to face your biggest fears. Loved the sailing and west coast setting!
