8th grader Wallace Wallace cannot lie. His negative book review of his teacher's favorite book lands him in detention, which consists of attending drama club practices where they are performing a stage adaptation of the book. Of course, hilarity and confusion ensue.

I loved the ideas of friendship in the book. Listening to the audiobook, I enjoyed the change of narration between the different characters, except for the teacher. I disagreed so fundamentally with his punishment that I couldn't get past it. I was also upset that Wallace's mom didn't become more involved. But if it was resolved that easily, there wouldn't be a book, so I'll get over it.

Overall, an awesome book about friendship, middle school, and being mellow. Also a clean read for younger readers.
