A school where the bad are taught evil ways. A good boy who looked the part but had a heart of - well not gold - but at least copper. We have Serbin who is a normal kid in an evil world. He just wants to be a normal kid, but his evil parents have plans for him. They sabotage him and get a place secured for him in SFE (School for Evil). In this school, one can learn the fine art of murder, sabotage, manipulation, and believe it or not... band. Because all of the best villains have theme music and, apparently, Motley Crue is an evil band...

I thought this book sounded great from the synopsis, and the look inside feature hooked me on buying the book. But what I got when I dug in further disappointed me. There were idiosyncrasies in the book that, quite frankly, annoyed me. In the beginning, I understand the need for the author to stress the boy wore all black. But for starters, it was done way to often, and then I wasn't really sure why he felt the need to start putting the word black in parenthesis... like it was some sort of interjection or something. For instance, the author would say something like, "He put on his (black) coat and his (black) sneakers, then found his (black) jacket."

There are three other main issues that I had with the book.

The was the author really didn't seem to know who he was writing this book for. The opening paragraph made it come across as a middle grade book - which is great for me, I love quirky MG books. The narrator talked to the audience reminiscent of Lemony Snicket, sort of the, "Now boys and girls" vibe. We have sentences like, "You're a jerk. I can't believe I'm stupid friends with you again." Other kinda quirky, middle grade humor would be where the narrator said someone was vacuuming their clothes every night.

This was an entertaining story told with humor and insight. However, the print edition could have benefited from far more thorough proofreading and attention to text flow (e.g., a contraction would break in the middle of the word)--one of the dangers of self-publishing. Perhaps this has been corrected in the Kindle edition. While this was distracting for me at times, the story was still enjoyable and I would welcome further tales of Serbin and the SFE.

Inventive cast of characters and events. Playful creative writing. I would like more background on how the main character was raised by both step parents...and closure on the Ferret

Serbin, the main character, holds steadfastly to his deeply normal goodness in the face of a world pushing him, relentlessly, to be evil. His parents, his school mates, his teachers peg him as evil because he looks more or less like a cartoon villian. But he's not and so he struggles in a crazy world to make friends, do well, grow up and be himself. As a children's librarian I would definitely recommend this book to Roald Dahl fans or the Lemony Snicket crowd. Very enjoyable.

I know the author is busy with his drawing and painting but I would love a sequel when he gets a chance.
