Homeroom Diaries

James Patterson / Lisa Papademetriou

Patterson brings the misfit theme of his Middle School series into edgier territory in this illustrated novel about a group of high-school outcasts who call themselves the "Freakshow." After a brief stay at a mental institution, 17-year-old Margaret "Cuckoo" Clark is back in school and living with her foster parent. She and her misfit friends are determined to break down the barriers between the feuding factions in their school. Not everyone is willing to get along, and Cuckoo works through her own uncertainty by writing and drawing in her diary.
