What I loved most about thi It is always a delight to find such a playful and engaging book as this one, especially for intermediate readers. What I loved most about this book is Burns' ability to keep the book lighthearted and fun while telling a story about bad behavior and trouble. I found myself laughing out loud at several parts and surprised by the twists and turns throughout the book. Readers who enjoyed The Mysterious Benedict Society will love the strange school and unique challenges brought forth in this quick read and playful narrative.
Nov 05, Henry S rated it it was amazing.

The book The Bad Apple should have the nobel prize for being the absolutely great story line and Jul 14, Janie rated it it was ok Shelves: kids-fiction.
The characters seemed a little flat, and every situation worked out a little too perfectly. The suspense was non-existent. Though the idea for this book wasn't bad, it was poorly executed. I didn't hate it enough to stop reading, but I won't be reading the next installment, even though this one ended on a cliffhanger. Mar 09, Trevor rated it liked it.
This book was bad in the beginning but left of with an interesting cliff-hanger. One of the problems was that if the cliff-hanger is true, is that she planned it horribly by not leaving any clues at all. Overall, its okay. Mar 09, Taylor rated it did not like it. I personally wasn't a big fan of this book.
I thought it was really boring at points. Other points it was kind of interesting but other then that it was very interesting. Mar 09, Max added it. Mar 08, JumpStreet69 rated it liked it. I don't know if this happened to anybody, but i forgot that some characters existed. I liked the book though. I liked the fact that he had demerits by the end of the book. Mar 08, Damian rated it it was amazing. I liked this book a lot.
I just have to say right off, that the ending is pretty crazy. Other than that I thought everything was good the whole way. I am excited to read the next one in the series. Mar 09, Joshua Birch added it. I thought it was a very good book and that I was very shocked when the main character had "killed" the substitute teacher. So this was a good book and I liked it a lot. Feb 23, Ivy rated it really liked it. I read this book a long time ago, and probably mainly because the cover art looked similar to the Secret Series.
It was good, I think? All I remember is the kid killed someone with an apple, there were robots you had to hide from, and maybe a pyramid of balls? This book has an intriguing premise: a school that teaches troublemaking and rewards misbehavior. Sadly, this book failed in so many ways, it was barely readable. Add to that characters whose motivations and reactions make very little sense much of the time and a plot that goes only to the most obvious places. Seamus Hinkle has killed a substitute teacher and is shipped off to the Kilter Academy w This book has an intriguing premise: a school that teaches troublemaking and rewards misbehavior.
Seamus Hinkle has killed a substitute teacher and is shipped off to the Kilter Academy which his parents believe is a reform school but is really a home for future troublemakers. Seamus spends the ensuing weeks stewing in guilt and dreading the fact that his new schoolmates will learn that he is a murderer, a quality his new teachers seem to value highly. Why does this secret school exist?

If that logic works for you, enjoy this book. Jan 20, Laura rated it liked it Shelves: old-reads , mt-bookpile. Poor Seamus: one incredible, coincidental, horrible throw of an apple and his entire life is changed. That apple? It hit a substitute teacher, in the head, and killed her.
And that one action got him sent to Kilter Academy for Troubled Youth, where his roommate, Lemon, has gone through twelve roommates in three weeks thanks to his habit of playing with fire. Seamus is homesick, ashamed of what he did, and hopes only to make it through the first semester so he can go home. But the Kilter Academy Poor Seamus: one incredible, coincidental, horrible throw of an apple and his entire life is changed. But the Kilter Academy is nothing like what he or his parents imagine and his natural instincts for trouble and kindness mean he's one of the most successful students at KA.
There are some great Lubar-eqsue moments and if every reader doesn't want a K-Pak, well, they're not reading clearly. This is a great book for middle grade readers ARC provided by publisher. Mar 16, Vicki Sansum rated it it was amazing. I picked up this ARC because the back blurb sounded fun. And fun, it was. When quiet year old Seamus Hinkle throws an apple to break up a lunch room fight, the apple hits a substitute teacher in the head and kills her. This premise would be horrible if it weren't for the fact that the story takes an unexpected turn to absurdity. Seamus is sent to what he thinks is a reform school, but instead he finds out that it's a school deigned to improve the talents of troublemakers.
This fast-paced book ta I picked up this ARC because the back blurb sounded fun. This fast-paced book takes off and never slows down with crazy situations, mysterious characters and unexpected plot turns. Friendships are developed and alliances formed while the students work to reach the next level in their progress of trouble making. I enjoyed this book immensely and especially loved the best cliff-hanging ending I've read in a long time. Can't wait for the next book. Apr 24, Mrs. Morgan rated it it was ok Shelves: student-read-alouds. I am the first one to admit that being a realist makes it challenging to read realistic fiction books such as this, because it is SO out of reach of any reality.
Most of the time however, I can acknowledge my shortcoming s and plug on. While I still "plugged on" with this text I was doing it as a read-aloud with my students , it was a challenge to do so. And while there are so many examples that I would like to give to support the above comments, I don't want to ruin the entire premise of Meh.
And while there are so many examples that I would like to give to support the above comments, I don't want to ruin the entire premise of the book and don't feel like hiding the review due to spoilers , so I will let it suffice to say, the younger the middle school reader of this book, the better.

It was 'just okay' for me. Apr 02, Nikki added it. I wish I hadn't waited to read it! Full of humor and mystery, mischief and heart. Speaking of hearts, I found my own heart actually racing at one point, I was so caught up in the story. Seriously, folks: palpitations. My sixth-grade son read it first, loved it, and shoved it on the top of my TBR pile. Glad he did! We're both a teeny bit desperate for the sequel - one of the great perils of reading an ARC.
