really liked it

Spud by John Van de Ruit is a hysterical novel. It follows the adventures of John Milton in his boarding school in South Africa during the early 1990’s, He is a very underdeveloped 14-year-old and part of the “crazy eight,” a group of eight wild boys that each have their own special skills. What with family troubles, arguments with girls, late night schemes and crazy dormitory battles, his life is very unique. It is wonderfully written and very very funny.
Any teenage boy with a sense of humour should read this book. Very entertaining, it is like a guide as to what not to do in boarding school. However, a reader must at least be 12 years old, and it’s more of a guy book. An easy four stars—hilarious book.
