Comments about The Deep End:
This was the first book my client who is 7 and a struggling reader read from cover to cover. It was a perfect instructional level for her and had a few difficult words to challenge her, but enough familiar ones for her to achievve fluency.
She is now keen to read more books in the series - woohoo! What a success.
