I'm 11, and I don't really see what compelled Jerry Spinelli to write this book. I don't see how anybody could relate to this book in any way. The beginning was confusing, and there really was no plot. The ending seemed useless, too. It was meant to show that Zinkoff wasn't a loser, but a hero. To me, it further showed me what a loser he was. I'm sorry, but I'd give it a 2.
