The Seventh Most Important Thing, by Shelley Pearsall

Summary: It was a bitterly cold day when Arthur grabbed a brick and hurled it at the trash picker. The judge is ready to send Arthur to juvie for the foreseeable future. Amazingly, it’s the Junk Man himself who offers an alternative: 120 hours of community service . . . working for him.  It isn’t long before Arthur realizes there’s more to the Junk Man than meets the eye, and the “trash” he’s collecting is being transformed into something more precious than anyone could imagine. . . .

  1. I really enjoyed this book. The storyline was very well developed and my favorite part was the plot. There really was no area for improvement. This is a newbery winner for me and I’d definitely recommend it.
