Book 18 - Schooled by Gordan Korman - somewhere in the USA

This book is so funny I laughed out loud sometimes. The Rap Book Report above tells you the story so I won't re tell it here. Gordan Korman is an amazing Young People's writer - his books are light hearted yet make a significant point. At the moment we have this novel in the PYP section - I think I will shift it to Young Adult. It is about grade 8 students and manipulation. Might be too subtle inplaces for our younger readers.

Gordan Korman's website and a reviewer has banned this book in her house - find out why
