The Vigilante Poets of Selwyn Academy by Kate Hattemer.
Witty, sarcastic Ethan and his three friends decide to take down the reality TV show, For Art’s Sake, that is being filmed at their high school, the esteemed Selwyn Arts Academy, where each student is more talented than the next. While studying Ezra Pound in English class, the friends are inspired to write a vigilante long poem and distribute it to the student body, detailing the evils of For Art’s Sake. But then Luke—the creative force behind the poem and leader of the anti-show movement—becomes a contestant on the nefarious show. It’s up to Ethan, his two remaining best friends, and a heroic gerbil named Baconnaise to save their school. Along the way, they’ll discover a web of secrets and corruption involving the principal, vice principal, and even their favorite teacher.
I love the idea of this book because it’s got reality TV which will appeal to teens, poetry, and corruption. What more could you want in a book? While there aren’t any outright obvious signs of multiculturalism, the book does start with the letter V.
Now go get some of this gorgy day!
