Highly Illogical Behavior by John Corey Whaley
Three unique characters. 1. Lisa Praytor – Highly driven high school student with an outgoing personality and a get-it-done attitude. She also has a great boyfriend. 2. Clark Kent. Just kidding. Clark (don’t know his last name) is Lisa’s water-polo playing, extremely nice, boyfriend who is pretty happy with things just…the…way…they… are. And then there is Solomon. 3. Solomon Reed. Sol jumped in a fountain in the 8th grade trying to end his panic attacks and then stayed at home for the next 3 years with a serious case of agoraphobia.
Lisa wants to use Solomon as a case study for her college essay and her big ticket outta here. Clark actually and truly really likes Sol because they have A LOT in common. I mean, how many kids want a holodeck for Christmas? And Solomon doesn’t know where these two friends came from, but his enclosed world is slowly opening after three years of solitude.
Surprise, this book is actually funny 🙂
Whaley is also the author of Where Things Come Back and Noggin – both available at the BHS Library.
