review The Best Man Richard Peck ↠ 8 review The Best Man summary ☆ 8 Newbery Medalist Richard Peck brings us this big hearted novel about gay marriage from a kid’s endearing perspectiveWhen Archer is in sixth grade his beloved uncle Paul marries another man Archer’s favorite student teacher But that’s getting. Archer lives a fairly ordinary but pleasant suburban life with a fantastic family His grandfather an architect designed the elementary school he attends and walked him to school every day when he was younger His father restores classic cars and cooks His mother is not a wedding planner as he thought when he was younger but a marriage counselor Older sister Holly who skips a lot of high school in order to visit colleges is the only difficult character in the family and bully Jackson Showalter is the only bad egg at school Even he is uickly put in his place by Archer s fantastic uncle Paul who is very metropolitan and has a job with an agency that deals with the Chicago Cubs We follow Archer s life through his narration from a wedding he is forced to be ring bearer in before he starts school There he embarrasses himself but meets his good friend and protector Lynette Every year brings different teachers challenges and classic cars Unfortunately we see Archer s grandfather s health fade over this time and he eventually passes away The year that Archer s class has three different teachers including Lynette s mother is a pivotal one as the class has a fabulous student teacher Andy McCleod Andy is a military reservist who has a fresh and energetic take on teaching and the students love him When he defends a student who has been attacked and had gay written on his forehead he also identifies himself as gay causing a bit of an uproar but not making any difference at all to the students who love him It s hard to say why this novel is so appealing and easy to read Not much happens but it s so pleasant and entertaining that I didn t care The humor is gentle but pervasive and Archer has a lot of intriguing interests His family is a big fan of the Cubs they build Lego villages together and deal with the death of the grandfather in a realistic and constructive manner We follow his elementary years up through 6th grade when his class moves unexpectedly to middle school after a school reconfiguration In addition to great family characters Archer is surrounded by interesting teachers and classmates Lynnette is forthright no nonsense and able to stand up to anyone who gives Archer a hard time When her mother becomes their teacher she is able to compartmentalize herself and not be bothered by this Mr McCleod is a great teacher without being overly sentimentalized The big talking point of the book will be that Archer realizes much after everyone else that his favorite uncle is gay but this really wasn t main point of the story Yes the uncle gets married to a man but this was addressed in such a supportive and accepting way that it was never an issue It was just life The fact that the topic is raised in the book will still upset people which is too bad If all families were able to weather their difficulties with the grace and fortitude of Archer s family the world would be a better place The Best Man is a great choice for readers who can handle uiet but interesting books that emphasize the importance of family such as Connor s All Rise for the Honorable Perry T Cook Graff s Lost in the Sun or Messner s The Seventh Wish Mr Peck says in

review The Best Man Richard Peck ↠ 8 review The Best Man summary ☆ 8 Serve as his role models From one exhilarating unexpected episode to another Archer’s story rolls along as he puzzles over the people in his life and the kind of person he wants to becomeand manages to help his uncle become his best self as well. Agghhh I m drowning in a sea of ambivalenceThis book is terrific The writing the insight the characters all the things that are here are terrific It s like like the objects in the curio cabinet in my mother s dining room Each item each miniature domino set porcelain sea urchin loose semiprecious gemstone expedition medal and antiue fountain pen is a treasure and each for different reasons In this book the parents who work from home one as a marriage counselor the other restoring antiue automobiles are treasures Grandpa the architect in his seersucker suit and straw hat a treasure Uncle Paul in his bespoke sportcoat and wingtips who will turn out to be both wise and gay is a treasure Archer s house is a treasure Large suare situated in a leafy suburb of Chicago I can picture it I just can t afford itWhich is not entirely an insignificant point Because like my mom s beautifully lit collection this book is just about the whitest thing I ve come across in a long time There are things that are not here amid its sparkling array of treasures There don t seem to be any black people for one thing Nor anyone with a Hispanic or Asian surname And regardless of the skillful references to Angry Birds and YouTube and Uncle Paul s wedding it is missing a true feeling of contemporaneityNow of course my mom s cabinet doesn t have to represent every facet of the human experience It would be weird for example for her to include a set of manumission papers to our knowledge nobody in our family was ever enslaved And the expedition medal is an object to be proud of not everybody does the dangerous thing for which it was awarded But at the time it was given it was almost exclusively white men who had the opportunity to earn itAnd while Mom may add a new item to that cabinet every few years it is by its nature disconnected from the present time That collection and I consider this a compliment rather than the reverse reflects her point of view and her point of view is that of a white woman born in a leafy suburb sometime before the middle of the last century In the case of The Best Man I feel a similar point of view applies And it s not it s a valid point of view and for sure there are kids in Evanston going to one class per grade seemingly all white elementary schools that are close enough to walk to But although this may be an increasingly rare point of view it s not one that is lacking in representationI also have something of an issue with the hunky student teacher who shakes up Archer s fifth grade school year All of a sudden there are field trips Something new every day Mr McLeod takes over for the regular teacher Mrs Stanley when she gets tripped up by improper fractions Really Guy teacher shows the ladies How It s Done HrrumphBut my gosh it just KILLS me to uibble with this book Uncle Paul s orientation love story and wedding are treated so wonderfully that is as if being gay were not a big thing which it isn t In many families In many communities But not all So that s really niceAnd lord Richard Peck is funny And his main character learns some things without the reader feeling Taught which is no mean feat I personally a white woman born in a leafy suburb who walked to school until she was 17 very much enjoyed the book But I think its time like the uotidian antiues resting on glass shelves in my mom s dining room has passed Now is the time for it to be admired for its form and craft because we are not likely to need to use it
