9780061348341: Don't Call Me Ishmael

'By the end of my first term of
high school, Barry Bagsley had
miraculously transformed me from
Ishmael Leseur to Stalepiss Manure.
And that summed up exactly how I felt.'

With a name that is sheer heaven to a bully with geek-seeking missiles, fourteen-year-old Ishmael's main aim is to keep a low profile at school. But cajoled into joining the debating team, he suddenly finds himself thrust into the limelight with mortifying yet hilarious results.

Join Ishmael and his intrepid band of misfit mates in what will become the toughest, the most embarrassingly awful and the best year of their lives.

Book Description Greenwillow Books, 2007. Gebundene Ausgabe. Book Condition: Neu. Gebraucht - Sehr gut upper corner of the dusk jacket knocked; ungelesen, sehr guter Zustand; Rechnung mit MwSt.; unused/unread, very good condition; - This is the laugh-out-loud-funny story of a fourteen-year-old boy who suffers from a dreadful disease known as Ishmael Leseurs Syndrome. The boy has diagnosed himself, and he just happens to share the same name as this disease, which causes one to be picked on by bullies, to be clumsy around girls, and to just generally have a bad time. Ishmael thinks that ninth grade couldnt be worse for anyone, until a strange-looking new kid arrives in class. He also gets teased relentlessly, but somehow he seems to have no fear. Over the course of the year, Ishmael learns from his new friend how to combat enemies with wit and intelligence, how to win a debate championship while being deathly afraid of public speaking, and how to embrace his uniqueness, including his name. 272 pp. Englisch.
