I've long considered "The Squeaky Wheel" my best work. It's a story that deals with a tough subject, divorce, without flinching or sugar-coating anything.

Divorce can turn children's lives upside-down. Moving, losing friends and familiar surroundings, and not knowing when they'll see the parent they don't live with can be traumatic for kids.

In The Squeaky Wheel, Mark Baker is in sixth grade and his parents are getting a divorce. He's angry, scared, and feels like his world has completely fallen apart. But although he just wants things to go back to the way they were, he has to learn, bit by bit, to pick up the pieces and rebuild his new life.

From making new friends to dealing with a bully, and even how he feels about girls, this story covers the whole gamut of emotions. Mark finally realizes he has to accept the fact his world will never go back to what it once was, but he still can make his life a good one.

The Squeaky Wheel was originally published in 1990 by Delacorte-Dell, and has recently been brought back into print because of its timeless message of hope for children of divorce. This sensitive portrayal of how Mark deals with this difficult situation is masterfully handled. I highly recommend this wonderful and well-written book.

The Squeaky Wheel is an awesome story about a kid whose parents are splitting up and he tries every way in his power to try to keep them together. Most people can relate to this story. It will show you about how much pressure it is without both parents together.

What is there to say about The Squeaky Wheel? I first read it about 10 years ago and I thought it was incredible. Smith created very believable characters and put them into situations which I think most if not all kids can relate with. The story is always interesting, and never loses momentum. I still love it and I am now 19 years old (it's just that good!)
