In 8th grade, Wallace Wallace the local football hero has to write a book report on Old Shep, My Pal, another of those stories where the dog dies. Unfortunately, Wallace Wallace has never told a lie and refuses to tell a lie, but he hates the book, so his book review doesn’t please his English teacher, who likes the book so much he’s turning it into a play and is directing it for the middle school drama production. Wallace refuses to write a positive review of the book, and his English teacher assigns him detention until he does so. This causes Wallace to miss football practice – and most of the games, and what is almost worse is that he has to serve his detentions at the play practices. After a little while, Wallace starts to make suggestions and get involved in the production of the play, but at the same time, someone is sabotaging the play. All the evidence points to Wallace. Is he the culprit? Will he ever get back to football? This is a funny, fast-paced book.
