"Anteater-Boy" by Dean Ammerman
The school year is coming to an end and high school freshman Zak Dale wants a summer job to earn some money. His fish-eyed science teacher, Dr. Cyrus B. Fletcher, has a job opening but wants Zak to clean the science classroom, improve his grades, and deliver an award-winning speech to get it. As Zak tries to prove he's the best person for the summer job, he helps his best friend Miles search for the holy grail of junk food, falls in love with the beautiful and mysterious Mia Holmes, locates his missing grandmother, neglects his bladder-challenged dachshund, and takes a journey through the American Revolution with Darius Brown, his substitute history teacher. Anteater-Boy is a funny, uplifting, fast-paced coming-of-age novel about friendship and about having the courage to decide who you are and who you want to be.

MY THOUGHTS: This is a light and humorous book all about being a freshman in high school. Zak and his friends have some quirky things happen to them during the school year. The stories included in this book are a tasty marshmallow, sculpted brain in a jar and of course a cute girl. Although I like them all, my favorite has to be the story of ice cubes in the milk. A really good and fast book to read.
MY RATING: 5
