The View From Saturday by E. L. Konigsburg

Reviewed by Sarina Nayak

“The View from Saturday” follows Mrs. Olinski, who became paraplegic after getting into a car accident. When Mrs. Olinski’s team, “The Souls”, won against the eighth-graders at the Academic Bowl, everyone was in awe, considering that “The Souls” were only in the sixth grade. How had Mrs. Olinski chosen the members of her triumphant team? The book tells amusing short stories of the four team members. As you read the short stories, you can slowly begin to understand why the four sixth graders worked so well together. “The View from Saturday” would be a great read for anyone ages 9 and above.
