Yes, this book annoyed me. Yes, the characters are the worst. But this is an important, well-written (just like in acting, if you make someone hate you/your character, you know you're doing well) book.

I work in a middle school, and my father is a middle school teacher. We all know that everyday parents are getting more and more involved in their kids educations, school budgets are getting tighter and tighter, and attitudes towards values and discipline are always changing. These are the facts, for better or worse. A situation like Nothing But the Truth could very well happen in the exact same way today, and that's precisely what me me so angry about this book.

I like the "documentary" style, and it was a quick read. The fact that Phillip knew what he was doing was wrong but didn't want to admit it, and his parents believed they were doing the right thing by pushing him is very realistic, as is, unfortunately, the school's preoccupation on getting their budget approved (which they didn't even!) over the integrity of a teacher.

I disliked the way the book was structured, and I found all of the characters unlikable. Perhaps a different structure would have allowed for more character development, resulting in more sympathetic characters. Of course, that might be the point of the book, which is valid but doesn’t make for an enjoyable read. ( )

Scouting out books for kid book club, and this is a good one. A bit dated in language and expression, but excellent issues at heart to discuss. Phillip Malloy is a 9th grader who loves to run, and also loves to be the smart aleck in class. The story is told as a multi-genre collection of writings all related to a few central incidents: there are diary entries, personal letters, school memos, phone transcripts, newspaper articles, etc. That there are no text messages or emails is part of how this feels dated. When Phillip is not allowed to try out for the track team due to his low grade in English -- a result of his poor attitude and incomplete school work, he turns the blame on his teacher and exacts his "revenge" in homeroom, rather than English class, by humming/singing the national anthenm during school announcements, which is against the rule for "silence." Miss Narwin, Phillip's teacher for both sections is an older, old-fashioned, tough teacher with a big heart, but that is st as events spin out of control. Phillip is suspended for his misbehavior, but somehow the story gets picked up by the press and distorted to make Phillip a hero for his patriotic stance and Miss Narwin is the villain holding him back. Avi does a great job of showing how things can get completely blown out of proportion as more and more people get involved and misunderstandings are perpetuated and politics come into play. She is even more adept at showing the cost of runaway stories and situations. ( )

Structured as a series of journal entries, memos, letters and dialogues, this highly original novel emerges as a witty satire of high school politics, revealing how truth can easily become distorted. After Philip Malloy, a clownish, rather unmotivated freshman, is punished for causing a disturbance (humming "The Star Spangled Banner"), facts about the incident become exaggerated until a minor school infraction turns into a national scandal. Philip's parents, several reporters and a neighbor (who happens to be running for the school board) accuse the school of being unpatriotic. Philip gains fame as a martyr for freedom; his homeroom teacher, Miss Narwin, however, faces dismissal from her job. After gleaning the points of view of many characters, readers will side with Miss Narwin and will recognize the hollowness of Philip's eventual victory. ( )
