Ishmael joins Scobie, Prindabel, Bill and the Razzman for another year at St Daniel’s, and with his father’s old band reforming and Miss Tarango on a mission to teach love poetry, there’s music and romance in the air. But can Ishmael stand up to school bully, Barry Bagsley, overcome Ishmael Leseur’s Syndrome and win the heart of Kelly Faulkner? Luckily, his best mate Razza – the self-appointed social worker for love – has a ‘wicked plan’.
What could possibly go wrong?
There are moments of sheer hilarity and the ending is a triumph. In Bauer’s second story featuring Ishmael Leseur, the dialogue rings true, the characters are finely drawn, and the story-line veers between wisdom and laugh-aloud fun – what more could you ask for? (Magpies)
The equally hilarious sequel to Don’t Call Me Ishmael! (Adelaide Advertiser)
Bauer has another winner with his incredibly entertaining and intelligent dialogue. This book won’t be put down till the last page. (Good Reading)
I’ll be looking forward to the next in the series. This book is a ‘must have’ for any teenager, avid reader or not. ( Yr 9 student review)
