JUVENILE FICTION / School & Education

BenBee And The Teacher Griefer is a funny, clever novel-in-verse series about Ben Bellows--who failed the Language Arts section of the Florida State test--and three classmates who get stuck in a summer school class. But these kids aren't dumb--they're divergent thinkers , as Ms. J tells them: they simply approach things in a different way than traditional school demands. Each chapter is told through the perspective of one of the four students, who each write in a different style (art, verse, stream of consciousness). The book celebrates different types of intelligence. Soon, the kids win over Ms. J with their passion for Sandbox, a Minecraft-type game. The kids make a deal with Ms. J: every minute they spend reading aloud equals one minute they get to play Sandbox in class. But when the administration finds about this unorthodox method of teaching, Ben B. and his buds have to band together to save their teacher's job--and their own academic future. The first in a series of complementary storylines, this is an honest, heartfelt book about friendship, videogames and learning to love yourself.
