Dont call me Ishmael
Dont call me Ishmael by Michael Gerard Bauer, is a young adult fiction about Ishmael Leseur, a 14- year-old boy, and his experiences in Year Nine of school. I found this book so funny and exiting.
This is a book about a young 14-year-old boy called Ishmael Leseur. As Ishmael moves to his new school a boy called Barry thinks that it is so cool to then start bullying him. That year he got bullied another boy called James then came to his school and Barry then thought it would be a good idea to then start bulling him. But James did not fear of Barry, with Miss Tarangos help, Ishmael leans to stick up for himself and tell Barry to leave him alone.
This is one of the funniest books I’ve read, which had me in stitches for most of the book. Right from when he first tells us how he came to be Ishmael until the wonderful ending. I think that it has been such a successful book in putting across the main themes and characters of the novel and dealing with bullying.
