I wish the title had been little more accurate but it definitely gets your attention. Kids get paranoid but the teacher is just pregnant, so they decide to enter a writing contest. Written in multiple letter form with the occasional essay style. Good for students looking for different layout to read. It is clever that each font was assigned to each student so you can recognize the new narrator. I'm okay with juvenile books but this was a very paint by numbers book. I didn't like how the students were characterized. They are very one dimensional, annoying and cliched. There is also too much learning going on. Yes it's in school but the side lessons on alteration and similes are out of place and feel like a lecture. Page 100 of 250 DNF If you're looking for a funnier book thats similar but KIDS would like check out "Frazzled: Everyday Disasters and Impending Doom by Bookie Vivat

Not as funny as her previous books, but a good choice for young authors.
