The Life and Times of Benny Alvarez by Peter Johnson

The Life and Times of Benny Alvarez by Peter Johnson

Everyone thinks Benny Alvarez is Mr. Negativity. According to Benny, he’s just realistic about seeing the “other side” of things — when it comes to just about everything. But maybe there’s another way to deal with the things Benny can’t control — like his ailing grandfather, his wild younger brother, and the know-it-all girls at school. In this poignant novel about acceptance, Benny Alvarez will have to decide… is the glass half empty or half full?
