Jack Rankin has a secret. The fifth-grader struggles to hide it from his classmates for the first month of school. Then the truth comes out: John the janitor is his dad. Jack is so humiliated, he plots revenge on his dad for letting it slip in front of his peers. After getting caught for vandalism, Jack’s punishment is, ironically, to help the janitor after school for three weeks. This work reveals many important truths about the school, his father and himself. Andrew Clements delivers an engaging drama for kids eight to 12-years in The Janitor’s Boy.
