Brookbank High is a typical high school, complete with jocks, cheerleaders, and social misfits, including one Kevin Mopsely.

Kevin has the misfortune of playing the flute - and playing it well. He has never been popular, until an accidental encounter with the senior class's infamous Graduation Rituals committee leaves him in charge of compiling the notorious Book of Busts, a book containing the physical measurements of each girl in the senior class.

Suddenly, Kevin finds himself in with an entirely new crowd, and he's finding that his newfound popularity isn't quite what it's cracked up to be. It seems as though everyone is beginning to hate him, including his best friend, Abby White, a girl with whom he just might be in love.

Can he figure out how to make things right before it's too late?

Antony John plunges the reader deep into the treacherous waters of high school with this lighthearted book. His characters are genuine, and his dialogue is quick and snappy. While some situations appear contrived, and the plot progresses predictably, BUSTED remains an entertaining and fun read. ( )
