    The Misfits

    The Misfits

    by James Howe

    At once hilarious and poignant, this novel is about four unpopular 7th graders who decide to band together to run for student council. One is overweight, one is tall and opinionated, one is slow, and one is gay. Together they make a formidable quartet as they confront their classmates about their name-calling and stereotyping.

    In telling this humorous, fast-paced story through the voice of chubby young Bob, author Howe teaches a valuable lesson about stereotypes and labeling others.

About This Book


Skeezie, Addie, Joe, and Bobby call themselves the Gang of Five. Wonder why? Their name is a welcoming to any other kid out there who may find him/herself to be a misfit.

Together, they want to survive the seventh grade and the one-word jokes their classmates have tried to reduce them to. By the end of the school year, they have survived, and also, learned to see themselves as the full, complicated human beings they truly are.
