The Defense of Thaddeus A. Ledbetter by John Gosselink is about a boy in 7th grade named Thaddeus. He is in a really long detention because he disrupted the school schedule more than twice. All it is is him and the principal writing letters back and forth, and the letters are boring.
I would not recommend this book. I didn’t like it because there was no excitement, funniness, or anything on an even moderately interesting level. I read some reviews by adults of this on Amazon, and they seemed to think it was great. But I didn’t think so! Maybe it would be better for older kids. If you HAVE to try it, it is on a 5th-8th grade reading level. If you’ve read this book and have a different opinion, please leave a comment.
