A Boy Named Queen by Sara Cassidy
This is a very short middle grade book about acceptance. When Evelyn starts 5th grade, there is a new boy in class whose name is Queen. Although two boys make fun of him, Queen doesn't let that bother him. Evelyn and Queen become friends and she learns a bit about friendship, bullying, being different and accepting people who are different. I think that this book would be good for elementary and middle school students, especially those who are reluctant readers because this is a very short book.
