“Fans of John Green will love this book! A new reality television show, ‘For Art’s Sake,’ has taken over the esteemed Selwyn Arts Academy in Minneapolis, MN, which is fine until Ethan’s best friend, Luke, joins the show. Now 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. This book had me laughing the entire way through!”

Amazon Description:

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.
