"So, do we have a deal?" Mr. Evans asked. "Unbelievable," I muttered under my breath. "I don't understand," Mr. Evans said. "The whole thing is unbelievable. First you try to threaten me. Then you try to bribe me. And now you do the two together, tryin

Ian, Oswald, and Julia, three best friends, watch a documentary in class called “Stuffed” about the major fast food restaurant chain Frankie’s. In the documentary a man eats nothing but Frankie’s food for every meal for 60 days. The movie showed how Frankie’s food is filled with fat and chemicals and eating it makes people unhealthy, overweight, and sick. Julia says she will never eat at Frankie’s again, Oswald thinks eating at Frankie’s in moderation is okay. Ian agrees eating at Frankie’s in m...more

I read this book before I weeded it.

The writing is crap. The story is crap. So incredibly bad. Can't someone write a hi/lo book that doesn't read like the author is condescending to a third grader.

I also found it hilarious that the teens in this book were using MSN and Hotmail. Sure.

If this is what we are giving to reluctant readers, no wonder they don't want to read.

this book is alot like the movie SUPERSIZE ME it is about an average high school class who watched a movie of a man who had to eat fast food 60 days straight with nothing else. having the local burger shop just down the street one of the boys in the class begins to strike from people eating their showing its unhealthy and unsafe. this book is very short and easy to understand it also is funny and imformative. i enjoyed the book alot and i found it very relatable to the movie

Ian's class has just watched a documentary about how Frankie's, alarge fast-food chain, puts chemicals and fat in their foods, which helps contribute to the epidemic of overweight consumers. Ian loves the company's fries but realizes that he might be able to get a class project done by taking action against the company. He and his friends send emails to their friends, urging a one-day boycott of Frankie's to raise awareness of the problem of additives. Frankie's lawyers get involved and attempt...more

Alright, so this was a (sucky) school reading. Since, where I live, we speak in French, our English reads are tiny. And, I mean, this book had big writing and was LITTLE! I don't think you can call this a book; I'd call this a STORY.

*sigh* So, the meaning of this book was good, and that's what kept me from giving it 1 star, but, otherwise, the writing had nothing special; the vocabulary wa...more

This book is about how Ian--the main character convinces everyone in the school not to eat fast food. They watch a documentary movie in class and there's one girl named Julia suggests people not to eat fast food. In the movie, they see there's a guy who eats nothing but fast foods. After a while, he's over weighted and felt depressed all the time. Ian told Julia that it's not easy to convince people not to eat fast foods.

I like this book because it tells people how bad is fast food and it's no...more

This type of book is for the person who wants boycott or suspense and a little bit of romance.I liked this story alot it kept me thinking about boycotts and the food they serve at fast food places but at sometimes i didnt like it becouse it stray of topic and i would get confused but other then that it was written neatly and i felt like i related to it at some parts becouse when the young lady in the story would complain or fight with her boyfriend or whine about when she wouldnt get her way i c...more

Even though everyone knows that fast food are bad for health, places like MacDonalds, Burger Kings are still crowded with customers everyday. But Ian wants to try something big, meaningful and almost impossible. He tries to convice all the people in his school and their friends and relatives to do the thing that he thinks is right, to not eat MacDonalds for one day.
At first I was shocked of the idea, but then I was really impressed by Ian's determination and how he overcame all the impossibles...more
Me
To start off with, I'm not really a fan of these little books. There's a series of them going around all about different issues. Stuffed definetly handled the issue of unhealthy food and big company habits really well. I do no recommend reading this book while eating. Stuffed had many strong points, and encourages others do make a change. It is realistic. However as with all the books in this series you never get to the climax, for length purposes. Also this book was obviously based off of McDon...more

After watching Stuffed (modeled after real-life documentary Supersize Me) in a class, a group of friends decides to use the Internet to raise awareness about the unhealthy food at Frankie's. They write a letter encouraging a boycott (Frankie Free Friday) and send it out over the Internet.

Though the Internet knowledge the kids have is already dated (they are surprised at how efective email is at spreading the word!) the story moves along at a brisk pace and shows that a single person can affect...more

Stuffed
Stuffed was a good book. I liked how some parts of the book related to some situations that happen in class in high school and also Life . Such as the fast food restaurants and how some of its chemically produced.I Also liked how Ian took on a big task on getting his school from eating at the restaurant because it was very unhealthy. Even when the company lawyers tried to shut them down

Very short, but a great story is held within its few pages. Characters relationships are strong, and the ending was believable. It also has a great message toward teen dating, one I can agree with.

Grabbed from the free books bookshelf at my school.

i love this author even though i know almost nothing about him. he's really great at taking things that happened or almost happened in real life and making them interesting. really great book, plot, characters,and topic. definately a favorite.

Good read for teens interested in nutrition as well as feeling that they have a voice. Read this whole book in about 40 minutes - very low readability level.

This is an Orca Soundings book. Great for reluctant teen readers, very short, high interest...

In his many roles as parent, teacher, social worker, youth sports coach and writer he is in constant contact with children and young adults. He draws from these experiences and feels that this helps him to capture the realistic interaction between...more
