    2. I enjoyed this immensely from start to finish The plot was by no means unconventional but the writing was so fantastic that I hardly noticed The narrator s voice was so vivid and he told his story with such a dramatic, humorous, theatrical flourish that you felt like his troubles with the school bully and insecurities about girls and public speaking were bigger news than WWII.I immediately guessed that the writer was a high school teacher, and sure enough, a quick check of the about the author s [...]

    4. A pleasant read, with many of the familiar themes of early high school life I really enjoyed the character of James Scobie and think many people could learn a lot from the way he conducts himself A very sweet book that I think any late primary to early high school child would enjoy I will seek out the sequel.

    5. This book is SO funny So many things happen the you might even blush on what happen to Ishmael There s also so many parts that you are would fall to the ground laughing This book is amazing and no doubt recommend it to all of my friends and family and everybody else.

    9. I am reluctant to criticize YAF because it is not aimed at my reading level The character of Ishmael is engaging in his own self defeatist attitudes and his cast of school yard enemies and weird friends surpass being simply caricatures The plot is not over predictable and the action never gets bogged down for too long in any one scene This lends the book an easy going feel that made it a pleasure to keep reading My main criticism would be the message about bullying and the melodramatic nature of [...]

    12. The start of this book didn t grab me but after seeing its rating and reading reviews I persisted and I m glad i did Really enjoyed getting to know the main character and the introduction of James Scobie was a highlight for me Would have loved to have had his character throughout the book This book would promote a lot of discussion, especially in regards to bullying Great mature read
