THE BREAKFAST CLUB meets middle school with a prank twist in this hilarious and heartwarming story about six very different seventh graders who are forced to band together after a vandalism incident. When Theo's photography project is mysteriously vandalized at school there are five suspected students who all say "it wasn't me." Theo just wants to forget about the humiliating incident but his favorite teacher is determined to get to the bottom of it and has the six of them come into school over vacation to talk. She calls it "Justice Circle." The six students—the Nerd, the Princess, the Jock, the Screw Up, the Weirdo, and the Nobody—think of it as detention. AKA their worst nightmare. That is until they realize they might get along after all, despite their differences. But what is everyone hiding and will school ever be the same? *PW Best Books of 2018 *Winter 2018-2019 Kids' Indie Next List * JLG selection * Three starred reviews Audiobook Cast of Narrators: Theo Gustav, read by Robbie Daymond questions read by Adenrele Ojo Molly, read by Jorjeana Marie Andre, read by Caz Harleaux Erik, read by Ramon de Ocampo Alice, read by Emily Woo Zeller Jax, read by JB Adkins and with an Author's Note read by the author "Every reader will find some piece of themselves in Levy's sharp, humorous, and heartfelt novel.

Professional reviews

"Seven narrators portray a diverse cast of characters in this seventh-grade version of THE BREAKFAST CLUB. When Theo's photography project is mysteriously vandalized at school, he and the five suspects must come to school over vacation for "Justice Circle" to process the incident. What starts as a whodunit about bullying soon becomes a story about loyalty and friendship as the nerd, the overachiever, the jock, the class clown, and the weirdo all bond with Theo and each other. Most of the story is told from Theo's perspective, and, as Theo, Robbie Daymond portrays each character with authenticity and heart. "Status reports" read in the voices of the teacher and each suspect help reveal their deeper personalities since we hear their voices very differently than Theo does.
