Okay, think “Diary of a Wimpy kid” for teens, or “Dork Diaries” for boys. Davis Delaware (who is not from Delaware) is a new ninth grader and falls head over heels in love with the popular Molly. He starts a band, “The Dweebs,” just to get close to her. Problem is that Molly is the girlfriend of the top jock school bully nicknamed “The Butcher.” This could all be a serious tale of troubles and woes, but alas, it is not. So, if you’re looking for an entertaining story that is a light read, you’ll enjoy this book. There are a lot of funny illustrations which won’t disappoint. Technically, this book is supposed to be about bullying, but the book is written in such a casual manner that I would consider this more of a humorous story than a book about bullying. Nothing wrong with that, but think I prefer my reality to lean more on the realistic side…
