This book is an English teacher’s dream. The main character, Scott Hudson, loves to read and is a wordsmith. His favorite class is English where his cool teacher introduces curriculum in fun ways that captures Scott’s attention. Throughout the story, Scott uses the narrative techniques, vocabulary approaches, and general word play that he learns in English to tell the story of his freshman year in high school. The often hilarious tale is full of coincidences that are just crazy enough to be believable as Scott goes from friendless loser, to popular and successful student. Half of the story is told in letters to his unborn little brother where he writes lists and suggestions on how to survive high school. A fun, quick read that would appeal to both boys and girls. I think it would especially be fun for middle school students.
