Gary W. Boone ("My friends call me Goon") is an aspiring stand up comedian, but everyone is fed up with his never-ending stream of jokes, most of which aren't very funny. Everyone, that is, except his best friend, Angeline Persopolis, his old teacher Miss Turbone (Mr. Bone) and their hat-wearing croquet-playing friends. When the school holds a talent contest, Gary is determined to win...but will fate be against him?
I won't give away any more of the plot, but this is a really good, humorous and realistic book, especially in the parts where Gary tries hard to fit in with the other kids. Anybody who's been a class misfit(like me) will understand how hard it is. Then there's the jokes...and that brilliant surprise ending...
anyone who fell in love with Louis Sachar's style in Holes will love this, but I reccomend it to anyone who can read.
And why did the guy eat a dead skunk for breakfast?
You'll have to read it to find out....
