Another Battle of the Books title...

In this one, a young man with the unfortunate double moniker of Wallace Wallace, bearing the burden of always telling the truth, gets into trouble with his English teacher when he refuses to write a favorable review of Old Shep, My Pal. His beef with the book? The dog dies in the end -- something he's found happens with every book about a dog that's won an award.

His punishment for not towing the teacher's line and writing a proper book review is to serve detention -- at the play the same teacher has adopted from Old Shep.

There are no surprises here as the football player finds drama nerve to have just as much heart as athletes, the drama nerds find the football player has plenty of ideas to improve their production -- and someone tries to undermine the whole thing, all the while trying to pin the blame on Wallace Wallace.

Jordin Williams You really didn't think there were any surprises? I was shocked at the end. I mean I had my suspicions but I was still shocked.

Nope. It seemed the obvious choice to me.

I will say it was popular with some of the kids in Battle of the Books.
