Overview

Gregory K. has too much homework.

Middle school is hard work, and Gregory tries to be a good student. He participates in class, he studies for his tests — he and his friends even help each other with their assignments. But no matter what he does, there's never enough time to finish all his homework. It just isn't fair.

So Gregory goes on a total, complete homework strike. No worksheets, no essays, no projects. His friends think he's crazy. His parents are worried about his grades. And his principal just wants him to stop making trouble. Can Gregory rally his fellow students, make his voice heard, and still pass seventh grade?

Find out in this book for anyone who thinks school is stressful, gets headaches from homework, or just wants to be heard.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I loved the idea of a homework strike and the lessons we learned along the way engaged my interest. Both as a child and as a parent I hated homework, so I was with Gregory in my heart all the way. But the way he chose to do it was so much better than I could have imagined. Bravo.
