This book is HILARIOUS. Once again, Chris has written a masterpiece. It's clever, unique, interesting and funny.
I totally recomend for anyone over the age of 14 (there are some swears).
Can't wait for the move to come out in Canada :)

this book is determined to be a hit movie and fly-off-the-shelve book! this book is sure to make you laugh and cry at the same time! it is about what is happening in the school that the teachers and staff dont know about, to dumb it down. Carson Phillips uses other students to boost his application for college in hopes that he can make it "big" in the college of his dreams, Northwestern, and become the editor of the New Yorker, in obviously, New York!
