Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathie M. Josephs
Loved it, loved it, loved it! I was caught up from the first chapter and read it through in one sitting. A boy named Duncan Stein comes to school on the first day but everyone who sees him thinks of him as being doomed right from the start. The author describes him as an "enormously tall, critically skinny teenager, who refuses to join any clubs, teams, or lunchroom cliques." He certainly is different, but honestly isn't bothered by not fitting in. In fact his favorite response to people is " I don't go that route." Being popular is the furthest thing from his mind. Eventually Duncan starts his own school newspaper and calls it REMOTE. Weird isn't quite an adequate word for what the students think of it. For example, the front page has only a quotation on it and nothing else. He puts in a want ad that says: "Wanted. A date for the Discovery Dance. She must be redheaded. It will be our one and only date. After that evening, there will never be any communication between us again. For an interview call Duncan Stein, 486-0243, and evenings between 7 and 9." The student body can't believe his nerve. REMOTE becomes very popular and this skinny boy who everyone thought was odd is suddenly popular and girls are dying to date him. Brings to mind the saying "You can't judge a book by its cover." There is absolutely nothing I did not like about this book. It is believable, humorous, and still captures the many confusing feelings that young adults have. It gives the message that it is okay to be who you really are. Reviewer: Kathie M. Josephs
