What a great book. Bill Allen has a wonderful sense of humor and is able to instill his novels with just the right dose of it. I will be surprised if you don't find yourself chuckling throughout the novel.
Orson is a misfit in his new school and he doesn't help himself much by devising a plan that's doomed to failure from the start. Allen is the master of throwing a dilemma in front of his main character and having that snowball until the reader can see no way out. Anyone who has ever been teased will enjoy seeing Orson work his way out of his problems.
I highly recommend this book for the writing, for the topic and the excellent examples it provides those who may think they are losers too, and for the humor. Orson Buggy has such a fresh look at his predicament, I think you will enjoy watching him face the challenges offered up in this book.

"Losers" is part of the title, but not abandoned in the dust of Orson's many precarious adventures is the "Lessons" he learns. This book is full of them, some on the surface, some cleverly tucked between the lines. But for your average middle-schooler trapped in a time of life that is so rife with angst, "Orson Buggy's Lessons for Losers" has so much to teach and so much to admire.
