Read full description of the books Gordon Yamamoto and the King of the Geeks:The story of two big kinda dumb bullies: at the start of every year they choose a freshman to anoint King of the Geeks, gluing a well-worn jock to his head.
Gordon's also having weird and unsettling dreams about his nose. There's a strange science fiction angle where an alien device gets lodged up a nostril; the alien directs Gordon to the King of the Geeks' house where through some odd machination Gordon's brain is infused with the King of the Geeks' memories. And Gordon is confused, seeing the King of the Geeks as a real person with a very disturbing home life.
I feel WAY too much was introduced in this brief story, and truthfully, I was really freaked out by a freshman building bombs in his bedroom and carting them around in his backpack. What?!?
However, my nine year-old son liked it, but I think he was esp taken with the "censored" bar over an animal cracker's rude gesture.
Not my favorite by this author, and so far from my favorite in the anti-bullying genre.
