This Is How It Always Is

This was a 5 out of 5 stars read for me!   “This is Claude. He’s five years old, the youngest of five brothers, and loves peanut butter sandwiches.

The brain, the beauty, the criminal, the athlete and the outcast. Five students walk into detention… but only four walk out.
