The Loser List

If you enjoy the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, you may want to check out this one:

The Loser List by H.N. Kowitt  

My 12-year-old grabbed it from my library stack immediately, finishing it before I ever had a chance to even suggest interest.

His response? “You gotta read this one.  It’s funny.”  He even noted certain page numbers he wanted to discuss once I’d finished.

So yeah, this one’s a keeper.  Here’s the basic idea:

Danny’s trouble begins when he tries to scratch his name from the loser list that happens to be displayed in the girls’ bathroom.  Once caught, he’s thrown into detention with a group of scary guys–Axle, being the leader and scariest

His mighty Sharpie saves his skin befriending the “Skulls” as their personal tattoo artist. 

However, hanging with the Skulls does have its consequences.  Soon, Danny realizes there are worse things in life than being included on the loser list.
