10th Grade

A-

”WHAT? ????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? ????… Do you understand anything this guy is saying?” cries 10th-grade narrator Jeremy, quizzing us on Shakespeare. Weisberg, in his debut novel, writes exactly like a high school sophomore for 259 delightfully baffling pages, as punctuation plays hooky and sentences hilariously run on past the bell. And as the chapter titles suggest — ”Gillians Basement Part II,” ”Will I or Won’t I Follow the Herd?” ”Prom” — the kid is recognizably ordinary. By the end, you’ve drawn conclusions about Jeremy that Jeremy hasn’t, but how appropriate. You didn’t know what it all meant back then either.
