Omari Jeremiah is a 15-year old African-American teenager from the Bronx, NY. He attended elementary school at CES 109 in the Bronx where he received many awards for creative writing. He now attends the Hackley School in Tarrytown, NY. This is his third book completed in a series of 6.From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-6 Paperboy, aka Michael Wood, is an 11-year-old African-American superhero who uses folded paper to defeat the bullies who have made him and his friends miserable. The bullies, led by Shorty Scarface and his ally, Copycat, who can imitate others' voices and skills perfectly, have taken over P.S. 244 in the Bronx (the adults appear to have given up and gone home). Scarface and his gang call themselves LOEP, short for the League of Evil People. Paperboy, armed with nonlethal weapons, such as his paper airplanes that deliver bully-stopping paper cuts, struggles with the LOEP for control of his school. The young thugs capture his friends and lock them in the storage rooms, and it's up to Paperboy to rescue them. Jeremiah was only 11 when he wrote the first installment, and is now 14. School of Doom, with its short, easy sentences monotonously salted with adverbs, reads as if it were written by a middle-schooler, but will appeal to young readers in need of a motivational boost. The full-color, comic-book-style illustrations by adult artist Rollins will draw in many children. Walter Minkel, New York Public Library
