Review

Justin is about to start high school when his parents tell him he is born to be a loser. It’s unfortunate, but it runs in the family and he just needs to blend in with the crowd. Justin, however, has other ideas! So begins the longest and weirdest first day of high school ever.


This is the perfect book for students in Years 5 and 6. You will fall in love with Justin and Eliza, and their attitude to life. They are wonderful characters and the story is very fast paced, funny and thought provoking.


It’s a book about being true to yourself and believing in yourself - even when the school bully is throwing a spitball at your head!
Highly original, very funny, and sure to be a hit.
