Detention

The best worst thing to happen to Peter Lee?

Peter and his best friend, Drew, used to be so cool (or, at least, not total outcasts) in elementary school. But now they're in middle school, where their extensive mica collection and prowess at kickball have earned them a new label: losers. Then Peter attracts the unwanted attention of the school bullies, and his plan to become popular through his older sister, the practically perfect Sunny, backfires.

Things go from bad to worse when Peter gets detention. But what at first seems to spell his utter doom turns into an unlikely opportunity for making friends and influencing people. . . .

About the Author:

David Yoo is the author of the teen novels Stop Me If You've Heard This One Before and Girls for Breakfast. He is also a contributor to Guys Read: Funny Business. He spends his spare time staring unblinking (in either wonder or abject horror) at his newborn son, Griffin. David lives in Massachusetts, where he teaches in the MFA program at Pine Manor College and at the Gotham Writers' Workshop.

Review:

“Peter’s earnest, myopic first-person narration is authentic and convincing, and Yoo exposes the precarious footing and shifting allegiances of middle school with a deft hand.... A mystery about the Fenwick Middle School thief contributes to the quick pace and adds a satisfactory surprise.” (ALA Booklist)

“Peter and Drew’s antics will keep readers laughing. Readers will be entertained by the boys’ hijinks and empathize with their desire to fit in.” (Publishers Weekly)

Praise for STOP ME IF YOU’VE HEARD THIS ONE BEFORE: “It wouldn’t seem possible to make high school jocks, popular girls and losers fresh and hilarious, but Yoo does it.” (New York Times Book Review)

Praise for STOP ME IF YOU’VE HEARD THIS ONE BEFORE: “Albert is a funny, fascinating, and infuriating character. Laugh-out-loud moments and painfully realistic scenes of student life will hold readers’ attention.” (School Library Journal)

Praise for GIRLS FOR BREAKFAST: “Very funny and bravely rendered.” (Seattle Times)

Praise for GIRLS FOR BREAKFAST: “Funny, dark, and subversive. Beware: you’ll never be able to look at a guy the same way after you read this book.” (Rachel Cohn, author of Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist)
