La trama es muy predecible, pero es perfecto para el publico al que está orientado y se disfruta mucho a cualquier edad.
Me divertí mucho leyéndolo, es una lectura de lo más agradable (ok, por momentos no tanto, hay cosas MUY asquerosas xD) y me hizo reír como loca.

I can describe School of Fear in one word….wait for it….QUIRKY! I bet you thought I was going to say spooky or scary or phobias or fearful. It has those too, but it’s mostly quirky. And I really like quirky.
The four main characters are children with serious phobias. So serious, in fact, that their parents have sent them to the School of Fear to be cured. My favorite character was Madeleine She was smart and soft-spoken, but she also had a major fear of bugs – especially spiders. I can rela ...more
It starts by introducing us - at length - to the four main characters and their fears. First we see them individually, and then as they start to come together. But this extended intro doesn't really add anything new, it's just the same sort of introductions to their phobia-induced quirks over and over again.
We finally get to the school and meet ...more
I'll end up using it in my second grade classroom to show students that even as an adult, sometimes we have to sound out l-o-n-g words (the different phobias).
Since that was my favorite part, I'll put those in here to save you the time from reading the rest of the book yourself...

While it was indeed interesting, and had a fun concept, it was predictable, in my opinion, and I didn't find it a new plot line. I personally wished they had played up on the actual fears though, as it seemed they were rather untouched throughout the entirety of the book.
The style and illustrations heavily reminded me of The Benedict Society. It was similar in ways, though I feel School of F ...more
Now, there is a definite similarity to The Mysterious Benedict Society in the quirky and humorous writing style, in the strange and implausibly designed world, and in the population of peculiar and eccentric characters. School of Fear lacks a certain coziness that The Mysterious Benedict Society holds, as one might gu ...more
I love this book because its quirky and fun. The book had me laughing at Mrs.Wellington's teaching methods. They sounded unusual. The book itself is a really good one and it was a...more
-The story was OK. (I wasn't that interested in it.)
-The author would put the name of the fear then, define what the fear was.
What I didn't like:
-So many details not needed. (Could've been simplified by a lot.)
-Didn't hook me at all. (I only read this book for the sake of A.R.)
I would probably read the 3rd book. I thought the 2nd book was good. The 1st was kind of boring. (I read the books out of order... I read the 2nd one first.)
This book is basically about 4 kids with fe ...more
What are you afraid of?
It may be spiders, death, confined spaces, or even large areas of water?
Whatever it is just remember, everyone is afraid of something.
The cover and name of School of Fear, by Gitty Daneshvari, makes the book look scary and serious. But before I was finished with the first page I knew it was a carefree, silly book. There is a wide range of characters from the normal, sports loving Garrison Feldman to the odd, brainiac Madeleine Masterson.
Meet the thoughtful, strange Madel ...more

I bought this years ago but haven't read it until recently, so I couldn't blame anyone that the plot is too simple for me now. But I'll gladly give it to my teenage cousins. Anyway it was an easy but humorous read.^^
Also, I didn't know that this book has so many SAT words. It was fun reviewing those new words while reading this book XD

You should read “School of Fear” by Gitty Daneshvari because it has interesting characters, a great theme, a cool plot, a unique setting, and it always leaves you in suspense.
One of the many reasons I love this book is because of its interesting characters. Theo, Maddie, Lulu, and Garrison all have very different personalities. For example; Garrison is 13 and is a “local celebrity at his school”(59). Lulu is described as mean and is “a bit of a rebel”(34)
Maddie is very nice, and she is sensitiv ...more
