Page, Katherine Hall Club Meds, 166 p. Simon Schuster – Jack, Mary and Sam call themselves and other kids who troop to the nurse’s office each day “Club Med”, as they get the medication they need to survive another day of school. Now they are in high school and Jack’s old tormentor has decided to use Jack as his personal supplier for his drug deals around campus – forcing Jack to turn over half of his medication for each day. Since Jack needs that medication to make it through each s [...]
Honestly, I couldn’t even finish it. I’m usually the type of person who finishes a book in a few days tops, especially if it’s a good one. But after struggling through 66 pages, I still knew next to nothing about what the hell was going on. And there was ALMOST NO DIALOGUE because most of it was just him talking about stuff or reflecting on things! I don’t know if it was a good plot- because I never got there, but the writing style was far from great and frankly does the opposite of pull [...]
It was a well writen book. Also since I have ADHD I can conect to the characters in the book.
Reviewed by Me for TeensReadTooFor John "Jack" Sutton, life is made up of two things--when the meds he takes for ADHD are streaming through his system, and when they're wearing off. For as long as he can remember, he's taken medication at regular intervals throughout the day to help with his ADHD, otherwise known as Attention Deficit hyperactivity Disorder. Although there are still plenty of times when his mind wanders, or when he can't answer a direct question, or when he's in his own world and [...]
Jack and his friends all get meds from the school nurse in the middle of the day, a trip that they affectionately call "Club Meds." Jack is just reaching high school and though he's excited about the new experiences and classes, he's not excited about being nearer to an old bully of his named Chuck. Sure enough, Chuck corners him and demands 20 pills per week so that Chuck can both take and sell them and Jack doesn't know what to do. Jack needs his pills to help with his ADHD and a lesser dose w [...]
Usually if I encounter people with problems such as these, I am overcome with the feeling of sympathy. Or pity. Or sadness. Or anger for the unfairness for their sake. Everything perhaps, save for the insane urge to smack them on the wall and stomp on them.Because that's what I felt with Jack and his friends.I have a friend with ADHD and yes, he annoys me sometimes but NEVER to the point that I'd actually want to smack him on the wall. And yet Jack managed to invoke these feelings from within me [...]
I was really disappointed with this book. We spend most of the time in the protagonist's head with very little action occurring.The main plot point is not entirely believable -- why is Chuck still so antagonistic toward him?Also, their solution to the problem is somewhat unrealistic -- what kids are actually going to be able to pull something like that off? It just seemed like a cop-out.The only positive point is that you get to see a little of what it's like to be ADD. It was almost like that w [...]
A great book about the underdog striking back. Jack Sutton is a member of "Club Meds," the kids who line up at the nurse's office to get their medication at lunch. Though he's a social outcast, he still had friends -- fellow ADD sufferer Mary and his best friend, Sam. They exist in uneasy balance until the school bully, Chuck, starts demanding Jack's Ritalin, or else. The kids of Club Meds put their minds together and come up with a daring plan that just might work -- if they can keep their cool [...]
I did not like this book at all. Although, it displayed bullying, I did not think that is was portrayed in a relatable or even realistic way. In addition, as i was reading i was hoping for a great ending to top off the book, but it never came. The ending was boring and it did not make much sense with regard to the rest of the book. I would not recommend this book to anyone because it ultimately was disappointing.
Eh. Don't really know what to say. It's a pretty forgettable little book that's easy to read, and the protagonist has a unique voice, but his condition doesn't come through in his first-person narration, and their whole solution to the bully situation is overly contrived. Not a complete waste of time, I guess.
Okay, this book is just bad. So cheesy. Totally improbable, ridiculous ending. I only give it two stars cuz i have a soft spot in my heart for books where disabled folks band together to fight back against assholes.
I think that this book is very odd but relatable. It talks about bullying and how it affects people and people around them. Also It talks about how ADHD and how it affects people and what they go through. It talks about the struggle and how you should be thankful. All in all this book was okay
It was o.k.
IT WAS GOOD
A light, quick and simple read, featuring a less-than-memorable but refreshingly not-irritating male protagonist at the center.
this book was terrible. i don't recommend it to anyone.
A not so bad book about standing up to bullies and figuring out how to make your way. Unrealistic at points, it is nonetheless a good read about a bunch of misfits sticking together.
