    Book Review

    'The New Rules of High School', was an amazing book.This book has kind of given me the guide line of being in high school. The book was about a high school student named Max, and the things that he faced inside and also outside of the high school world. Max was an intelligent student in class like being the editor of the school paper, but like everyone, he had a wild side. Max went partying, had a girlfriend, lost his virginity, and also had an imense amount of peer preasure. Max went through a lot of stuff in his life. He also had some love mixes. He had a girlfriend that he loved, then when this girl named Lydia joined the newspaper with her column, he started to like her, and etc. All those activities might sound a little difficult, especially for a high school student, but it's really the phases of being a teenager. I recommend this book to anyone who's an teenager or an adult, and also those who have a lot of spare time. And for more information on Max's being in the story, how about you just read the book!

    Amazingly interesting!!!!!!

    This book is about the senior year for Max Caldwell at Evergreen High School. He is the cool overachiever that finds out what it is like to enter the social world with a bang after breaking up with his girlfriend Cindy; who is also popular, cute, and smart. Max can get away with almost anything because of his irresistible charm and brains. Max turns away from the road to Yale and starts hanging out at a dance club called Agenda and meeting one of the coolest girls in town. He goes to parties and hangs out just like a normal teenager I know this because I am a teenager my self. He meets girls that are not really smart but have interesting views on life and social problems. Max pretty much goes from a good teenager that does what's expected of him to a regular old teenager that hangs out and parties with friends all if the time. I think that this is a great read for teenagers who want to know what it is like in high school. Sean F.

    Amazing and realistic!!!

    The moment i started reading this book, I couldn't put it down. The story pulls you in and you really feel for Max. When he is troubled you feel troubled for him, when he is happy you feel happy for him. A part of you wants to experience his life style. It's amazing how realistic Blake Nelson can describe events of high school. This outstanding book will make you look at life in a whole new way.

    Love It!

    I am actually a little more than half way done with this book, but so far I LOVE it. I'm 13, and I never really realized that things like this actually DO happen in highschool. It gave me a lot of tips, and overall I think this book is sooo interesting and I am so eager to read it in my free time!

    Made my Top 5 List!

    This book depicts the life of a Mr. Perfect as he goes through a break-up and partying, losing his virginity, being editor, car crash, underage drinking, and peer pressure It's pretty much a teenage life. This book is and all-in-one package of how people change their views and how their friends/ environment affect their life and opinions. From meeting punk chicks to nature freaks to freshmen wierdos. It's a perfect book if you're so lost in life, but even if you're not, it's still awesome

    really good

    this book was very bare bones in it's style. It's almost like a play. The story really creeps up on you because you think it's about Max and his old girlfriend but then Lydia steals his heart. It is a VERY realistic look at high school. If you just want light fluff, this is not for you.
