Don't call me Ishmael by Michael Gerard Bauer
Reviewed by Jake Massih (Year 9) 50 Book Challenger Extraordinare
This book is about Ishmael Leseur, a boy with Ishmael Leseur's syndrome. He hates his name and gets bullied for it, until Scobie comes, a nerdy looking boy who is not afraid of anything. Ishmael joins the debating team and 'accidently' gropes his crush ... fantastic!
What did I like about it? It was really straight to the point, with good Moby Dick facts, and a greatly interesting style of writing. I really did enjoy this book.
What did't I like? I have to read the sequel!
