Jeremiah Reskin has big plans for tenth grade—he wants to make some friends and he wants to take a girl’s shirt off. It’s not going too well at first, but when he meets a group of semibohemian outcasts, things start to change. Soon he’s negotiating his way through group back rubs and trying to find the courage to make a move on Renee Shopmaker, the hottest girl in school. At the behest of his composition teacher, Jeremy’s also chronicling everything in his own novel—a disastrously ungrammatical but unflinching look at sophomore year.


“offers its reader a knowing glimpse into the mind and life of a young man alertly immersed in the early high school years. This wonderfully humorous account will be a gift to students, parents, and teachers across the country.” —Robert Coles, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Crisis

“10th Grade brims with wicked wit and style. The characters materialize like long-lost friends and crushes—and enemies—from high school.” —Ben Sherwood, author of The Man Who Ate the 747

“is a sly, often hilarious novel featuring an absolutely credible fifteen-year-old narrator in a tale that is irresistibly readable, hugely winning, and resonates far beyond the adolescent world it portrays.” —Jennifer Egan, author of Look at Me
