G/A  Grimes, Nikki.  Words with Wings.  WordSong, 2013.  84p.  978-1-59078-985-8.  15.95.
Daydreaming is Gabby's (short for Gabriel) favorite pastime, especially when it soothes her angst about her parents' separation.  Noticing that Gabby is trying extremely hard not to be distracted from school work, her intuitive teacher allows a daily 15 minute period for all students to daydream and document their dreams as a writing exercise.  Story is presented in verse format -- making it a good candidate for classes studying poetry.  E.M.
