Summary from Goodreads: In 2012, a documentary crew descended upon Westside Middle School to detail the life of an average seventh grader and his classmates.
What they uncovered, though, was far from average. Mostly, it was upper average along with moments of extreme average, highlighted by several minutes of total epicness.
This is the story...
Trevor Jones--perfect attendance award recipient, former neurotic (he hopes)--has been preparing for the start of seventh grade his entire summer.But he is NOT ready for the news his best friend, Libby (proud neurotic, in a color-coding sort of way), drops on him: he must ask a girl to the fall dance. By the end of the day.
Trevor decides he would rather squirt hot sauce in his eyes than attend the dance. Everything changes when he meets mysterious new student Molly (excessive doodler, champion of unnatural hair colors). Trevor starts to think that going to the dance maybe wouldn't be the worst thing ever. But what if she says no to his invitation? More important, what if she says yes?!
Tina's Review: The Classroom by Robin Mellom is a great book for older elementary children or seventh graders. It is a story about Trevor Jones and how his first week of junior high is. It highlights some of the fears of those entering a new school and how to make new friends. The author has the book set up like a screen play. After each chapter are mini-interviews with the characters. I felt this was a well written and entertaining book. The illustrations are very clever.
