The Ballad of a Broken Nose by Arne SvingenBart is an eternal optimist. At thirteen years old, he’s had a hard life. But Bart knows that things won’t get any better if you have a negative attitude. His mother has pushed him into boxing lessons so that Bart can protect himself, but Bart already has defense mechanisms: he is relentlessly positive…and he loves opera.
Listening to—and singing—opera is Bart’s greatest escape, but he’s too shy to share this with anyone. Then popular Ada befriends him and encourages him to perform at the school talent show. Ada can’t keep a secret to save her life, but Bart bonds with her anyway, and her openness helps him realize that his troubles are not burdens that he must bear alone.

It will make you feel uneasy. And it will make you laugh again.

McElderry, [p] Trade ed. Classmate Ava takes a sudden interest and plows right into his life, offering him friendship and a bit of hope, but also spreading the word of his situation among their peers and putting the pressure on him to sing at the end-of-year talent show. Unfortunately, every time he tries to sing before another living soul, he balks and croaks. As he musters the nerve to take a swing at a bullying classmate, to organize a building-wide cleanup, to pay a surprise visit to Terfel, and to possibly locate his father, maybe singing for an audience no longer looks like an impossible dream. Only a couple of fleeting references clue [End Page ] readers to the Norwegian setting, and American kids who miss them are unlikely to suspect they are anywhere other than in Middle School, USA.
