ridiculous/hilarious/terrible/cool: a year in an american high school - Elisha Cooper I have to say the title of this book is really forgettable. I had to refer to my copy often to remember what it was that I was reading. Luckily, most of the high school students whose year of school take up the pages inside are less forgettable. Though the author’s writing style is fairly spartan and he never really delves into the emotional impact the students’ decisions have on their lives, nonetheless there is at least one kid who will stick in your mind, should you choose to pick this one up. For me, it was Zef. I could take or leave the soccer kid, the baby-daddy boy who lives in the cafeteria, the budding politician, the dancer, the “foreign” one, any of them, but I really rooted for Zef, and I hope his life turns out the way he thinks would be cool.
