King of the Screwups

by K. L. Going

Though Liam Geller is Mr. Popularity, nothing he does pleases his father, so when he is kicked out, he uses the opporutnity to reinvent himself into everything his father wants.  With new friends and a new “family”, can Liam create a life that makes them both happy?

Tips: 

  • Going is the author of Garden of Eve (see my review here) and Fat Kid Rules the World (Printz Honor Book).
  • Liam is very into fashion, is attractive like his supermodel mother, and he is completely straight.  His homophoic father is scandalized when Liam moves in with his flamboyantly gay Aunt Pete.  This is a great title to encourage thinking about difference in a new way.
  • Screwups and popular kids alike will respond to Liam’s struggles to please his father and find his own way.
