I would recommend this to a reader who likes humor in a boo
Wish I had realized this was part of a series!

It was really interesting to see that cool kid in school was an over-achieving do gooder. That's a change from last decade! A little slow at certain plot points, but fun, funny, and the good message at the end seems to work and is not too preachy.

The marketing of this book doesn't lie as your Diary of the Wimpy Kid/Big Nate fanatics will totally be attracted to this book's mixed media and wittiness.

Have you ever had that one person, that one attention grabber? you know the one that steals all of your friends with good looks or maybe the way they talk like a accent? Well Danny Shine knows what its that like in the book The Loser List: Revenge of the Loser. The genre of this book would mostly be Adventure because Danny tries to find a flaw about Ty Randall, new student and the attention grabber. I think this book was really boring despite that I didn't like the jokes cause they were not real ...more

This book is written in a way to be very appealing towards kids. The cover illustration shows that it will be a humorous book with lots of wit and sarcasm. The writing style is perfect for this book and tells the story in a very good way. The author does a good of using great details when it comes to describing the characters introduced in the book, as well as language that is used by kids this age. It is definitely a book that young readers around 12 would be able to realte to very well. The fo ...more

When Danny Shine sees Asia, the girl he has a crush on, talking with the new kid, Ty Randall, not only does he get jealous, he wants to get even. Ty is a kid devoted to saving the planet and is involved in many eco-friendly projects, but when Danny hears Ty rapping, he knows he has found Ty’s weak spot. Planning a school wide talent show to publicly humiliate Ty is more work than Danny and his friend, Jasper, bargained for. Written in the journal style of DIARY OF A WIMPY KID, there is plenty of ...more

So I found myself somewhat endeared to the first Loser List book. I thought it was a decent Wimpy Kid-esque contemporary YA book that mostly succeeded in what it was trying to do. Unfortunately, the second book in the series isn't nearly as good.

The conceit in this one is that our loser protagonist is now threatened by a new cool kid in school. The kid is an over-the-top environmentalist type, helps out all over the place, is a good artist, knows famous people, etc. So, of course, he must be des

Dear Ms. Dansky,
Danny Shine (the main character) and his best friend Jasper had a very regular life until Ty the new kid came to their school. Almost all the girls in the school fell in love with him and even Asia (which Danny had a secret crush on)started hanging out with Ty. After a whole week of thinking what to do, Danny came up with an idea to make a talent show and he actually got it organized at the auditorium ( which was very hard). He only made this to be loved by the girls and to make

The book Revenge of the Loser by H.N. Kowitt is about after Danny Shine gets his name off the list he is faced with a new problem this guy named Ty Randall who is perfect and a great drawer is becoming more popular and danny wants to claim that he is a better drawer than Ty to get the girl of his dreams. Kowitt uses a student tone to represent the main character Danny. I would recommend this book to middle school students because that is where it is based.

Danny Shine goes to Ford Gerald Middle School, he wants to just become popular through his artistic skills. Although, a new kid has come to school; his name: Ty Randell. Now, Danny wants to neutralize this threat by making him look moronic because Ty is winning many awards and opportunities, some that should have been Danny's . Then Danny tries to embarrass Ty and make himself look more cool and popular. The Loser List: Revenge of the Loser's two main theme are revenge and jealousy.

It's not quite as funny as Diary of a Wimpy Kid, but has a similar feel and look and is entertaining. Basic premise of the sequel to the Loser List: Danny is no longer on the loser list, but he has a new problem: the new kid Ty is too perfect and ruining Danny's reputation as an artist, so he decides to get revenge.

An okay runner up to the first book, but just not as interesting. There wasn't as much going on in this novel and that made for a slow read at times. The emotional struggle Danny bounces through isn't really as intriguing as in the first novel, so the suspense is less than stellar.

It is a Great book about Danny who wants to put on a talent show to raise money for a class trip to a water park. When the new eco freak kid comes to school he ends up wanting them to donate the money to charity.
The loser list is about a boy who just wants to be popular in the school but then it gets harder for him to do that because of a new kid who is going to their school now but then at the end they work every thing out and they become friends

The thing that confuses me is why people don't really like him and he didn't even do bad playing baseball and they put him on the loser list.
