No More Dead Dogs by Gordon Korman

I really wasn't sure about reading this book.  I like Gordon Korman's books, but this one didn't stand out to me.  My mom insisted I try it anyhow and I am really glad she did.

Wallace Wallace is the most honest person you will ever meet. Ever since he was little, he has told the truth and nothing but the truth. One day, his truth telling abilities go too far when he tells his English teacher what he really thinks about the about an assigned book, which happens to be their teacher's favorite one Old Shep My Pal.

As his punishment, he has to serve detention at the play rehearsal for Old Shep My Pal until he writes a proper book report. As he serves detention, he uses his truth telling skills to give his opinion and ends up changing the play from the boring original to what he thinks it should be.

This is one of the best books I have ever read. The storyline, the action, the emotion, it all just clicked for me. I loved how every chapter and every part was told by a different character resembling a different point of view. I liked how Wallace's truth telling skills were good, but sometimes it backfired on him.  The characters were so real and how they were described showed what they looked like in my head. I really hope Gordon Korman writes a sequel to this one.
