“Graduates of Wayside School will fit right in at the decidedly unconventional Kaboom Academy. . . . Middle schoolers will clamor for a transfer.”—Kirkus
Kaboom Academy, a new and alternative school for middle-grade kids, is chock-full of innovative methods of instruction and discipline that are soon to be tested on the middle-school students of Horsemouth, New Hampshire. Now, meet the class of Journalism 1A. These group of nine misfits are the staff of The Daily Dynamite, Kaboom Academy's quarterly newspaper. As their school year kicks off with a boom, literally, the students of Journalism 1A are about to discover what really goes on at Kaboom Academy and who's really in charge of this groundbreaking school for boys and girls who've fallen out of love with learning.
Praise for Middle School Cool:
“This amusing and lighthearted story pokes fun at traditional education, while celebrating nonconformity, individuality, and even oddity.”—School Library Journal
