You probably hate school (but I hope you don’t). School is something that we all try to live through and hopefully you make it to the other side with some self esteem intact and the ability to count back change.

On the bright side, school is where your friends are and that is cool, right? But on the dark side, school is where your frenemies are. *shudders* Back on the bright side, school means tater tots for lunch. Yes! But it also means homework. *sigh*

Do you often wish your school life had more drama? It isn’t all that it is cracked up to be…just ask these books.

Frankie Stein was created in a laboratory, and when she enters Merston High School camouflaged as a "normie," all she wants is to fit in, but it takes the help of another new student who believes that everyone should be treated equally before Frankie even has a chance.

Sophomore Frankie starts dating senior Matthew Livingston, but when he refuses to talk about the all-male secret society that he and his friends belong to, Frankie infiltrates the society in order to enliven their mediocre pranks.

When fourteen-year-old Anthony "Ant" Jones from the ghetto of East Cleveland, Ohio, gets a scholarship to a prep school in Maine, he finds that he must change his image and adapt to a world that never fully accepts him, but when he goes home he discovers that he no longer truly belongs there either.

Brooklyn fourteen-year-old Kelsey Finkelstein embarks on her freshman year of high school in Manhattan with the intention of "rebranding" herself, but unfortunately everything she tries to do is a total disaster..

After an idyllic childhood of homeschooling with her mother and three older brothers, Maggie enrolls in public high school, where interacting with her peers is complicated by the melancholy ghost that has followed her throughout her entire life.

When a virus deadly to adults infects their high school, brothers David and Will and the other students soon break into gangs that fight each other for survival and the hope of escaping their quarantine.

Still not sure you want to go back? Take a peek at popular author and Grand Pooh-bah Nerdfighter John Green‘s “An Open Letter to Students” and as they say in John’s hometown,”Don’t forget to be awesome!”
