Adorable chicks made from pipe-cleaners and google eyes express all the angst, drama, and heartbreak that is middle school in Slone Tanen's Appetite for Detention. Follow the many interwoven storylines featuring the stereotypical characters you'd find in any middle school: popular girl, wannabe, jock, geek, fat kid, rich kid, GLBTQ, and a few who defy labels and/or don't really fit in with any clique as they go back to school.
Hilarious! If you're still in middle (or high) school, you'll relate to what the characters are going through. If your middle (and high) school days are behind you, you'll laugh (cry?) at the memories this book will bring up. --AJL
