Sophomores and Other Oxymorons by David Lubar - ESSENTIAL

Lubar, David Sophomores and Other Oxymorons, 414 pages.  Dutton, 2015.  $18.  Language: PG (5 sweares, 0 ‘f’); Mature Content: G; Violence: G.

Scot Hudson is ready to start his sophomore year.  Unfortunately, he got off on the wrong foot with his English teacher and he can’t seem to dig himself out of the massive hole he created.  How could he feel so smart last year, but be acting so dumb this year?  He seems to be avoiding the other pitfalls of his freshman year.  But this is Scott we are talking about, so something is sure to go wrong!

Ahhh – David Lubar!  You are a comic genius!  Even if I have to wait a few more years, I hope I get to follow Scott through the rest of high school.  I love that Lubar lets a good idea percolate until it is actually ready.
