9780330420921: The Loser's Club

Best friends Alex, Winston and Manny are founding members of The Losers' Club - a group of so-called losers who meet to moan about their loser status. But now they've decided that enough is enough. Throwing darts at a life-size photograph of Jerry Whitman, school bully, just isn't satisfying their desire for revenge. A school competition gives them the perfect opportunity to humiliate Jerry but it's going to take some meticulous planning and a lot of guts to win for the first time ever. Meanwhile, Winston's loaded parents are away and the three friends have the run of his mansion home. And chaos is just around the corner...

About the Author:

John Lekich taught English and Drama at a junior high school for two years but decided he wanted to write full-time. He is passionate about the movies and has been a film reviewer for 18 years, writing for The Los Angeles Times, Reader's Digest and The Hollywood Reporter. He is currently a film reviewer at Vancouver's The Georgia Straight and has also written a teenagers' guide to movies. The Losers' Club is his first work of fiction for teenagers and he has just completed a novel for adults. John lives in Vancouver and enjoys going for long walks, listening to jazz and petting friendly neighbourhood dogs.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 9-10-Alex Sherwood and his friends, Winston Chang and Manny Crandall, attend McLuhan High School and are members of "The Losers' Club." Alex has cerebral palsy. He catches the eye of Julie Spenser, a girl who dresses in black because she can't find anything darker to wear. Jerry Whitman, the school tyrant who extorts money from his fellow students, is interested in Julie and challenges Alex to a showdown. If the Losers' Club wins the "Festival of Lights" competition, Jerry will shut down his extortion ring. If Jerry wins, the Losers' Club will disband. Alex eventually triumphs, winning both the competition and the girl. Lekich's debut novel is lacking in plot and character development. The story meanders aimlessly for the first 100 pages before reaching its predictable conclusion. One never comes to care about or empathize with the characters because Alex and his friends are two-dimensional. The dialogue is believable and flows smoothly, but the humor is somewhat stilted and forced. The author shows some promise, but doesn't quite deliver.
