Nothing’s Fair in Fifth Grade. Title/Author/Main Characters. The book I read was Nothings Fair in Fifth Grade , by Barthe DeClements.
Jenny knows one thing-that the new girl Elise is the one stealing other peoples lunch money to buy candy. Soon, since no one is confessing, the entire class gets punished. Nothings Fair! But eventually Jenny and her class learns that most things aren’t fair for Elise either. Elise is on a super strict diet, and soon she starts losing weight. But now, her mother won’t buy her any new clothes, instead she’s going to send Elise to boarding school after the school year ends. Nothings Fair, but with some effort things can get better!
