Editorial Reviews

Review


Grant provides trenchant criticisms of educational policy ... (with) acerbic wit." - Publishers Weekly

"Jonathan Grant just might be my new favorite writer. You want to laugh? Grant writes with smart, sardonic wit. You want to be moved to tears of heartbreak or rage? Grant can get you there, too. And, he does it all within a story that speeds along like a bullet train and keeps you turning page after page. Chain Gang Elementary might be every parent's nightmare, but it's a hell of a read, and I highly recommend it." - Mama Zen, The Zen of Motherhood

"... Chain Gang Elementary
is darkly funny, entertaining, well-written, and has a great deal of heart." - Shay's Word Garden


Exceptionally well-written." - John Pearson, teacher and author of Learn Me Good

This book is (what) Desperate Housewives
wishes it could be." - Indie Books List ("Book of the Month" award)

"Required Reading: If you've ever clashed with a principal or fretted about passing a motion at a PTO meeting, you'll be able to relate to some of the challenges faced by Richard Gray, a work-at-home dad who becomes PTO president in Jonathan Grant's novel. ... In addition to being an entertaining read, it tackles issues like school violence, racial discrimination, and teaching to the test." - PTO Today


"Those who have written education columns for newspapers, survivors of parent/teacher organizations as well as many others will find that Grant has done an exceptional job of weaving educational fact and enticing fiction together. For that, he deserves an 'A.'" - Jack Kennedy, former president, Education Writers Association

From the Author

Writing Chain Gang Elementary is my revenge for having to read Lord of the Flies in high school.
