Worst Journal Ever by Spencer Clark


25318762

Its Spencer Clark’s first day of the 8th grade and he and his class are asked to write a journal about their summer experiences.  Spencer is a little put out.  How on earth can he show off his amazing writing skills with this lame topic?

“It was official, I was about to begin writing the worst journal ever.”

Spencer decides he will put his own spin on the journal by telling a different story.  With a lot of sarcasm and 8th grade humor, Spencer Clark tells his fantastical version of the first day at a new school ala Groundhog Day, rehashing the same day over and over with the most popular girl by his side.

I bought this book for .99 cents from Amazon at the author’s urging.  I personally wasn’t at all enthused about the story line of this book.  There was no depth here and it all seemed rather unoriginal and juvenile to me.  I did finish it because it’s a quick read and I don’t do DNFs often.   I’m sure it might be entertaining to another 8th grader, just not my cup of tea.  Now if Spencer Clark is actually an 8th grader then I might have to reevaluate the quality of the writing.  I’m just not clear whether that is the case.  As Spencer would say:

“Fine, I’m weak sauce.”
