Reminiscent of Clementine and The Year of Billy Miller, Bat and the Waiting Game is the second book in a funny, heartfelt, irresistible, and widely acclaimed middle grade series starring an unforgettable young boy on the autism spectrum from National Book Award finalist Elana K. Arnold.
For Bixby Alexander Tam (nicknamed Bat), life is pretty great. He’s the caretaker of the best baby skunk in the world—even Janie, his older sister, is warming up to Thor.
When Janie gets a part in the school play and can’t watch Bat after school, it means some pretty big changes. Someone else has to take care of the skunk kit in the afternoons, Janie is having sleepovers with her new friends, and Bat wants everything to go back to normal.
He just has to make it to the night of Janie’s performance. . . .
