Dodgeball High by Bradley Sands
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The book follow main character, Justin Lucas, a very witty, sarcastic, and very funny kind of dude. Or better said, Justin is the cocky-confident dude, with a super cool mustache. Justin speaks directly to the reader, interjecting his ever thought of those surrounding him. Here is Justin’s introduction to himself:
The first thing you should know about me is that I am very handsome, nice, smart, athletic, and funny. Basically, I'm the coolest kid on the planet. And I've even got the coolest name in the universe.
Are you ready for it?
Whoa, I flip out a little every time I think about it.
Like the book description says, Justin starts a new high school with a curriculum dedicated to playing dodgeball. The description basically tells the entire story, but it does go much deeper than the surface. This book is very funny, especially the moments when Justin gets caught up in his sense of humor.
My Honest Opinions/Thoughts: Truth to be told, some of the chapter titles came at a slight offense, probably because I try to refrain myself from using such language. But of course, to each their own. I loved the book. I wish Justin were a real character. He kind of reminds me of one of my brothers, who is just as confident as Justin, but at a lower level. I have a small inkling that this is kind of throwing the school system to the spotlight; ‘They are not teaching the curriculum that you thought they were.’ Of course, I could be wrong. All the same, this book gave me a good laugh. I would not recommend this for under age readers. I found it a little inappropriate, and I skipped over many paragraphs so that I would not have to stop reading. I probably won’t be reading this book again, personal reason.
