I have read four of the other SAT voacbulary novels by sparknotes and I have loved all of them! Most of them I have read more than once. When I first heard about these books, I was not turned on at firt. I thought to myself 'I would get really annoyed moving my eyes up and down the page all the time, and the stories probably are not that good anyways.' But I ended up coming back and tried to read on of the SAT books (Busted) and ended up loving it! Not only are they great stories, but you learn to get used to looking at the defenitions, and sometimes you don't even have to. Another thing that I like about these books is that you are able to relate somehow or another to one of the topics that are going on in the book. For an example, in S.C.A.M, Mike not only is pressured because of college scouts visiting his games and getting his applications in, but he also makes a wrong decision and he has to learn to fixit on his own. We all experience making the wrong choice and having to turn everything back around to make it right again. So, if you are intrested in reading a great book and learning while you read, the S.C.A.M and the other SAT novels by sparknotes are for you!

This particular novel was horrible in my opinion. Terrible. Hated the plot... Couldn't wait for it to be over. However the over Smart Vocab books Spark Notes has done were almost as good as any other novel. Sometimes they defined obvious words and sometimes they didn't define a word I didn't know... There are often tiny typos too. I feel like they (in the other books) too a decent book and went through and used a thesaurus on it... Some of the definitions were awkward, kinda true but it was off within the context. However it does teach you the general meaning of the words and (the other books) have a pretty good plot. I highly recommend the other books they did but this one was just painful to read...
