In Let’s Kill Mr. Pond, Andrew brought us a thrilling tale of two boys, Sam and Jonnie, in the first part of the tremendously hellish series- The Chrome Junction Academy. In this new series we get an insight into school life at Chrome Junction Academy with a humorous and terrifying take into this rocky and uneducated world we live in with the frightening future of the kids we expect to take over when they grow up. Now, we are given a look into life at Chrome Junction Academy from the eyes of two girls in Vicky & Lizzie’s First Period.
We are started at the beginning with our two main characters, Vicky and Lizzie, shoplifting before breaking out into a musical of sorts that leads them to the school grounds at CJA. Vicky and Lizzie takes place around the same time as Mr. Pond, meeting about halfway in to give two different sides to some of what happens in this volatile school. We are to expect a bit of an overload of utter rudeness, complete disrespect and total foulness that we experienced with Sam and Jonnie in Mr. Pond with Vicky and Lizzie. When a teacher is accused of fondling a student, the corruption never stops dwelling within the youth’s minds and through the power of sisterhood- and best friends- nothing is stronger than a bond bound by the pinky finger. We also get to see a disturbed and abused student that wants nothing more than to drive sharpened pencils through her skull… and of course, Vicky and Lizzie’s first period with Mr. Bloom. Be ready for rumors and more in this chaotic, rowdy and more bizarre than In Their Shoes: The Teacher combined with Pure Dark in a salacious scandal that abounds through a corrupt society with never ending abuse from every character in Mackay’s world. The body count continues to pile with this new exciting series with a bit of humor, musical singing, terror and thrills. Do you dare to dip into the world of two twelve year old girls? I advise you to join in and prepare for the convulsion and shuttering to run through your nerves.
Mackay has surprised me again; only this time, it’s not a cliffhanger that has me on edge but how he has combined a little bit of every one of his books that I have had the pleasure to experience so far. I do believe that he has even brought more to the table this go around through a musical setting with humor and a touch of horror. It reminds me of if In Their Shoes and Pure Dark had a baby and gave birth to a completely new series that is finalized with a song. Andrew has done fantastic at presenting a disgustingly bizarre tale with laughter in the pages of Vicky & Lizzie’s First Period. With books piling up, we can expect more to bring this story into its full form. Mackay is clever at leaving gaping holes that we never knew were there and filling them with new pieces of backgrounds and tales.
This brings me to the most exciting part of what I experienced in the book- I wanted to squirm, jerk and even scream at times. Vicky & Lizzie made me laugh, worry and yes… it even made me almost cry, which is very hard to do but Andrew knows how to get you in the feels when he wants to. This book leads into a new story that needs to be filled and makes me anxious to get started with, The Belch Park Field Trip- the first trip that Mackay has offered that has a ride that is oh so familiar in Pure Dark. I cannot wait to see Max Dark’s Ghost Train come to life and elevate the unorthodox and sheer grotesque features that are laid out from the first part of this series and unremitting into Vicky and Lizzie’s First Period. How much further can he go with the field trip? We can only wait, trembling impatiently as we want to dig our fingers into the third part of one of the best series Andrew has written so far.
This is easily one of the most bizarre, quirky but fun books I have ever read, and I have a feeling I really do want to read the next book in the Chrome Junction Academy series. This was surprisingly for me a rather quick book to read, and I really enjoyed seeing what would happen next.
For what started as a regular week in the life of two twelve year old girls who spend their days at school, it very quickly turned into a week I doubt they would ever forget, and not for good reasons. I can't tell you what happens as you wouldn't believe me if I did.
This is not a book for the easily offended, if you only want a book that is in good taste, no profanity and all happy and smiley then this won't be for you. If on the other hand you are open minded, like a laugh and take everything at face value and with a pinch of salt, like I did, then you may really enjoy this book.
The best way I can describe this book is the comedy level of South Park, I don't always find it funny but something keeps me watching, and that same in this book. At points I did feel very ill at some of the scenes, and I'd like to call Vicky and Lizzie all manner of bad words, but yet there was something believable with all the characters in the school, and there was something that kept me reading.
I also liked that there were references in this book to the authors other books, and the author himself made a cameo of sorts in the book, although if you haven't looked at his back catalogue titles you may not even realise. Equally I spotted a joke in there about his next book which isn't out yet, which also really made me smile.
As I said above this is a musical comedy, and I could really picture the students breaking off from what they were doing and having these big song and dance numbers in a rude version of High School Musical. In fact half of me would have loved a soundtrack, the other half would love to see this on the stage, think it would really attract a fabulous audience that way. Some of the songs you will recognise, others I believe are new to the book but you sort of got a feel for the rhythm of the lyrics if not the tune.
Please don't look at the title and be put off by the mention of periods, they are poked fun of, but this isn't a teenage angst book, and there is plenty more in the book too, assorted topics that the mickey is taken from.
This book is as far from politically correct as you can get, and I think because of that I thoroughly enjoyed it. I may not be 100% about the ins and outs of what good satire is, but this was a book that the way I read it, as an amusing story really worked for me.
This may be the first book I have read by Andrew Mackay but I have a feeling it won't be the last.
This would make the perfect gift for that special female in your life, no, not the young girl about to menstrate for the first time, but the more mature woman about to be done with that phase of life.
I can't wait to see what madness is in store for us in the next installment of this series!
