Stanley Will Probably Be Fine

Stanley Will Probably Be Fine

The book “Stanley will Probably be Fine,” by Sally J. Pla is about a boy name Stanley Fortinbras who is 12 and has sensory disorders.

Stanley’s issues cause him to get scared of lots of things and sometimes he may faint or panic! There is almost nothing good in his life!

He has a very terrible 14-year-old brother named Calvin who is always mean to Stanley and thinks  that Stanley is embarrassing when he goes to school and has panic attacks.

Stanley’s dad is on a mission to save the world and has been gone from his family for months. Stanley’s only friend Joon may no longer be his friend since he is ditching Stanley for this kid named Dylan and always is trying to act cool.

There’s noise everywhere and dirty things like street buses!

But if there is one thing Stanley loves, it is comics. He just loves to sit in his room when its quiet and read comics in fact he is a comic master!

For the first time in a long time, Dylan asks Stanley to hang out at his house to study for Comic Fest. Stanley is conflicted because the winners of Comic Fest will get VIP comic Fest passes.

Dylan is really using Stanley since he loves comics just like Stanley and since Stanley is a comic genius who can help Dylan win VIP passes.

Then there is a new neighbor that Stanley’s mom really wants to get along with. She forces Stanley to say hi to Liberty, the new girl next door. Liberty is the total opposite of Stanley, she is always happy and very brave.

Stanley and Liberty end up getting trapped into doing the Comic Fest competition together.

Will Stanley get the VIP passes? Find out by reading the book!

I would recommend this book for ages 9-12 and for both girls and boys. 5 stars. This made me want to read more and more. This book was a page turner with some interesting twists.

Also, parts of the book are realistic because Stanley is bullied a lot. If you’re bored, then this is just the right book for you!
