Nobody understands Wallace Wallace. This reluctant eighth-grade football hero has been suspended from the team for writing an unfavorable book report of 'Old Shep, My Pal'. But Wallace won't tell a lie — he hated every minute of the book! Why does the dog in every classic novel have to croak at the end?
After refusing to do a rewrite, his English teacher, who happens to be directing the school play Old Shep, My Pal, forces him go to the rehearsals as punishment. Although Wallace doesn't change his mind, he does end up changing the play into a rock-and-roll rendition, complete with Rollerblades and a moped!
"Briskly stirring in complications and snappy dialogue." Booklist
