Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Shapiro (Hockey Days), acclaimed for children and tween books, introduces his latest for music fans. The book takes place in a high school where a group of four friends start a band named the Stereotypical Freaks. Each boy represents a stereotype: the jock; the weirdo; the brainiac; and the outcast, but none of the boys represents these stereotypes in real life. As the story progresses, the boys mature and learn more about themselves and their abilities. Without giving too much away, the story also focuses on one character’s serious tragedy. The story culminates with the high school’s Battle of the Bands competition, which is a significant turning point for the boys’ friendship and their futures. The story realistically portrays adolescent angst, heartbreak, and growing maturity but with the kind of requisite humor and sensitivity that tweens will appreciate.

Verdict This book is recommended for tween boys who love music. Although some of the music referenced may be unfamiliar to this age group, these readers’ enjoyment of the story may make them seek the answers!—Lucy Roehrig, Ann Arbor Dist.

    Four high school guys come together out of school to make music

    Four high school guys come together out of school to make music with their band practicing for The Battle Of The Bands.  During school some of guys are in different social groups that do not necessarily mix well with each other.  As the guys play together they also learn that their social group status may not be as important as the friendships they have made with each other. Each chapter has a list of rock songs to listen to giving you more insight into the guys and their music.  They each have their own baggage to deal with but they come together as a band.   




    I like the suggested music in beginning of each chapter. I have to say that the dynamics between Mark and his jock friends and Mark and the band reminded me of the beginning episodes of Glee. 
    The band really comes together in the end.  Although I am curious what happens to the band now after their loss.




    I like the title Stereotypical Freak and it seems to fit they although I would not call them all stereotypical and every teenager thinks they are a freak.  Other than that I have no bad issues with the graphic novel.




    It was enjoyable, funny, sad and moving.  Probably will read again and find the songs to listen as I read.

    This is one of my more difficult reviews to write as I don't wis

    This is one of my more difficult reviews to write as I don't wish to give any spoilers.

    To put it simply, the graphics and story are well done. Yet that is too simplistic.

    Some have said this is not the typical graphic novel, yet it is thematically. We all have to find our place in this world. However, this story takes an experience most of us have gone through to make it more easily relatable.

    Overall an enjoyable read with good graphics.
