Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

The most dangerous game...

Social studies class gets a lot more exciting when a visiting teacher, Mr. Levin, comes to Sweet Valley Middle School to teach the students a game. The rules are simple: Mr. Levin tells the students what to wear the next day, and they get points for obedience and demerits for disobedience. They get extra points for ratting on anyone who disobeys.

Everyone loves the game, especially Aaron Dallas, who is determined to be the best player of all. But Elizabeth Wakefield thinks something is fishy. Why is it so important that everyone dress the exact same way? And if it's just a game, why is everyone taking it so seriously?

This I have to say was her best book. I could read it over and over without getting bored. Some parts I wanted to cry and some parts I felt how could they do this. I thought the way she told a story about history basically repeating itself when you think it can't was great. Elizabeth was the only one who would do something and she got persecuted. Just like in the 1930's. I am learning about this so I know what happened to the Jewish people. Over 6 million people were killed because of their religion. In this book this is an example of people being excluded because of being different. I thought it was a good lesson and you will to. I give it a thumbs up

This book was one of the best out of the series. It teaches a lesson about holocaust but nobody learns till th end. The saddest part was when somebody(i am not naming who) threw one of the wakefield twins into her locker because she was spreading a true rumor around the school. I defiunetly recomend this book.(mind my spelling)

I first read _It Can't Happen Here_ about three years ago when it first came out. I was in the fifth grade. I'm going into the ninth and still remember the lessons it taught me about excluding people because of race or religion. I was also shocked when I started comparing Sweet Valley to my own little world. How often do we think, as we're working on a history assignment, "C'mon, this kind of thing could never happen to me or my friends!" Oh, yes it can! I figure most of the kids looking at this review will be about to enter the 5th or 6th grade. Your'e just getting ready for middle school. Be careful how you treat your friends, teachers, and even your siblings and parents. Don't look down on them because they don't think, act, or look like you. Because someone else is always looking down on you for the same reasons. Don't let what happened to Elizabeth, Jessica, and their friends happen to you and your friends. Happy Reading!!

I re-read this book as an adult & yes, one of the other reviewers was right on the money when they said it was an excellent teaching tool about the Holocaust. It can very easily happen even here in the US. When you have the cliques who gang up on other kids & make fun of others & exlude others, it needs to be taken seriously, not passed of as just "normal" adolescence or childhood games. Boy, does Aaron learn a powerful lesson when that awful Brian manipulates him into doing stuff to other kids. Poor Aaron was wracked by guilt! His granddad's warning about being careful about clubs was a good one. We need more books like this to make sure this kind of history never repeats itself.
