The novel, Don't Get caught in the Teachers' Lounge, by Todd Strasser, is a story about three kids trying to pull off a scam at their school. If they get caught, they could get expelled. Wilson, Dusty, and Kyle, are buying drinks from the teachers lounge, and selling them in the boy's bathroom. They novel takes place at the Harts Mark's Middle School, but the theme of the story is, when you do something bad, but you know you won't get caught, you shouldn't do it anyways. The main characters of the story are Wilson, Dusty, and Kyle. Wilson, is the kind of guy that likes to invent things and is always getting into trouble. Dusty, on the other hand, is a slick guy that can talk his way out of anything. Kyle, is just a nice guy that no one would expect to get in trouble. I like Dusty, Kyle, and Wilson, because they are funny when they mess up. I like the way the author wrote the book. I liked how he told about the different things. I also liked the way the author ended the novel. Todd Srasser, keeps the reader interested by making things funny. The vocabulary is about right for the complication of the story. I liked the way the author told about everything. However, I think the author might have described everything a little too much. I recommend this book for right year olds to eleven year olds. It would be too hard for younger children and too easy for older children. I would recommend this book because it's funny, has some action, and isn't boring. From a scale from 1* to 5* I rate it * * * *. K.A.B

This was a splendid book. It was splendid because it teaches you how to steal sodas and it's fun to read.Also it's about friendship and how money can mess things up. The story takes places in a school present day.The characters are Wilson,Dusty,Kyle,and Cheech.My favorite character was Cheech because he dresses up like a little green woman. I recommend this book to people ten to thirteen that like to read funny books about comedy.
