Seems the author/publisher has created multiple private accounts to put up false reviews of this book. The only reviewer who didn't have a private profile copied my review for Diary of a Wimpy Kid and applied it to this book.
Robert Mchale's review http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/...
"Don’t expect Tolkien, but this novel will make you laugh.[Guaranteed!!] Salman Aditya is obviously still a big kid himself because he writes about the daily life of school boys with alarming accuracy."

Put yourself in a situation where you’re a freshman in high school but not ordinary school. Its maybe a combine between a prison, regular public high school and Hogwarts. Everyone thinks you’re a stoner, but you are actually is.
You’re smart, skinny, and have a group of friend who as crazy as you. They live in very imaginary environment. You’re trying to change them but actually they changed you, the better you. You start believing in something called love but in the same time you don't actually

This was really funny, I don't know if it's supposed to be a kids' book or just meant to look like one. A fake journal of an awkward boy's first semester of high-school and his trials and tribulations, hand-written and complete with some cute drawings.

Snarky, wild, weird and in the same time clever, while all at the same time being able to provide some interesting school story and background on some of the best old jokes. A good fun read that goes quickly and offers some fun facts and puts to rest some other misconceptions.

Extremely charming, this book had me turning the pages.
The fonts are big (at least in my edition), so it's easier for children to read, and the illustrations (though sometimes not quite accurate) do a good job of painting a visual picture to the words. As an adult, I still really enjoyed reading this again, and will probably go back and read a few more Salman Aditya books before too long.

I guess some people may say this book as a bad writing, but I think they are grammar hitler. The author of this book choose to say it loud and clear without any boundaries and stick rule. It maybe confusing at first but after several pages you will see its really easy to read.
Its make the book unique and I must say a breakthrough..

It's interesting stuff going on in this book related to the kids this day, school, home and his study group and their madness with the new things and concepts that he is learning in life. It's makes me feel good because I myself reminisce
a lot of time about all the stupidity and foolish plans that I use to come up with.

You know what? You guys should read this book, I never heard the author before but he is genius. He write a book like no one that I known of. I have read books from Jeff Kinney, P.G Wodehouse, Tina Fey, Steve Martin and so on but this book just different. The structure, the narration, the character, the story it makes you really wonder.

Don’t expect Tolkien, but this novel will make you laugh.Guaranteed!!

Salman Aditya is obviously still a big kid himself because he writes about the daily life of school boys with alarming accuracy.

Life as a school boy gives you plenty to deal with and he add it with some unique flavor.

I LOVED high in School. It was so hilarious, I almost fell of my bed. It didn't take me long to read, because once you read it you will be sucked in to it. I loved the plot, and how james thought about things. His study group, his friends, they also really funny!

This is my perfect kind of book: not that well written (so its not boring), the author write this book in a different perspective. he doesn't care about rules and stuff but I think that's make this book different.

I love a story with an ever increasing comedy or errors. Yes, I love a book that makes you laugh out loud. And I love a book that tells a story where everything works out till the end. This book delivers on all accounts.

High in School is about this kid name James and his rest of study group. His insane study group I must add that one. Its filled with happy character and made my day so colorful after reading it.

It's not that similar to Jeff Kinney's Diary of a wimpy kid better yet this one is written by a drunk and stoned humorist, enough said.

High in School was just as funny and descriptive as the other. In this book, James has disturbing conflicts with his ego and weeds addiction that enrages James.
