Upped it from 2 to 3 stars :p Cute little read, and although Sharpay annoyed me constantly and Troy annoyed me a little of the time, I like the memory refresher :)

Such a fun read! It felt like I was watching the movie again, although minus the songs (which I missed)...I guess that made it a little bit of a flat read and not as enjoyable as the movie was. :/

As much as I hate to say this I read this book and liked it. MAN!! In general I really read the book and bought it for 4 reasons only. One, being that I am a fan of the High School Musical series. Two, HSM2 is my favorite one from the whole series cause I like most of the songs in it. Three, I wanted to know what was really going through the mind of certain characters. and four, it was on sale for $2.50.

I will have to say my favorite character from the movies is Gabriella Montez but in the book

I forgot I ever owned this, but I mean it was practically just the movie script with pictures and since I enjoyed the movie back then I guess I enjoyed the book?

School's out and summer's finally here, but for Troy, Gabriella, Chad, and Taylor, they are working at a country club owned by Sharpay and Ryan's family. Troy and Gabriella were hoping to spend a memorable summer together at the county club while they were off shift, but Sharpay isn't willing to allow that. With the yearly talent show on the way, Sharpay is more than willing to take the chance and steal the spotlight with Troy, knowing that Troy and Gabriella were planning to perform a duet. Wit ...more

Summer is finally here and the wildcats are excited for an amazing summer. But for Troy and his basketball gang, Gabriella and Taylor, they are going to Ryan and Sharpay's country club to earn money. Once they start working, everything goes wrong. Gabriella wanted a summer to remember with Troy but it isn't going the way she planned. Sharpay doesn't even care that Troy and Gabriella was suppose to perform together, she wants the spotlight only on her and Troy. When Troy's friends and Gabriella s ...more

It's the summer holidays and the Wildcat's team needs to find summer jobs - each for different reasons. When Troy receives a call telling him about their summer student programme he mentions all his friends. Little do they know that they will be working at the place owned by Sharpay and Ryan's parents. The summer starts off to an okay start but when Troy starts getting privileges he doesn't understand why his friends are annoyed.

I read some of the other reviews and they've pretty much said that

I liked high school musical back then and it was good and it was when school was over and time for summer job opportunities and one of them is going to Sharpay and Ryan's place of vacation and their father own a Country Club and most of the High school applied for it. Sharpay's plan was to get Troy Bolton out of the high school group closer to her like girlfriend and boyfriend plus joining the family of Sharpay and Ryan and it worked. At the end Gabriella faced Sharpay that Troy is with them and ...more
N.B. rules the High School Muscial movie novel world. I'm not sure that is a literary accomplishment, but it must count for something. I love the High School Musical movie novels, but as the most ridiculous of the HSM films it is my least favorite. Fun fact: It took them six days (almost a fifth of their 30 day shooting schedule) to film the Bet On It sequence. It makes me feel so much better about my life when I realize that Zac Efron spent six days prancing around a golf course.

HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL was great! I love all the characters they all have different personalty. At East High the final bell rings signaling the beginning of summer vacation, and the students converge in song ("What Time Is It"). As a symbol of his feelings for her, Troy Bolton (Zac Efron) gives Gabriella Montez (Vanessa Hudgens) a necklace with his initial "T" on it. The Wildcats then sing one last chorus of "What Time Is It" outside of the school. I don't want to give all the details for those who ...more

It is about Troy(Zac),Gabrialla(Vanessa),Sharpay(Ashely),Ryan(Lucas) and the wildcats.The wildcats are spending summer working at sharpays family resort which is totally tiring.The resort is having its annual talent show and Sharpay has her ways of making Troy join her in the show.Sharpays doing ends up in Troy losing his friends.The story is with alot of nice ups and downs.It will be better if you watch the movie though because the movie shows all the dance and song.

High School Musical 2 - The book of the film is really bad. The book is just one long summary of the movie, but where all the songs, and all the things that makes High School Musical 2 good, is not in the book.
The book is missing the spark that the movie has, and the spark is the reason that the movie is amazing and the book is just bad.

I'm not a fan of the movie or book. But, I do have to say, whoever wrote this did a good job. This is nothing like the movie, which I have. I used to like the series of books and movies, but now... I just don't. I would recommend this book to people in 2nd grade or even 4th. I just don't like the series of books and movies. I also read Crunch Time, another book in the series.
