Book Review - The Homework Strike

The Homework Strike

About the Book
Gregory K. has too much homework.

Middle school is hard work, and Gregory tries to be a good student. He participates in class, he studies for his tests -- he and his friends even help each other with their assignments. But no matter what he does, there's never enough time to finish all his homework. It just isn't fair.

So Gregory goes on a total, complete homework strike. No worksheets, no essays, no projects. His friends think he's crazy. His parents are worried about his grades. And his principal just wants him to stop making trouble. Can Gregory rally his fellow students, make his voice heard, and still pass seventh grade?

Find out in this book for anyone who thinks school is stressful, gets headaches from homework, or just wants to be heard.

My Take on the Book
I think every child has probably thought about doing something to stop all of the homework and this book does just that. The book is a fun, action-packed story that even shares some great messages about homework itself (that are positive in many ways). I also have to say that the main character was great and I loved that he was a poet. It was fun to see how Gregory protests in a "nice" way. The characters were fun, diverse and more. The author even has characters with learning disabilities which was a nice addition tot he book itself. The book is a ton of fun for all ages!
