I am a GENIUS of UNSPEAKABLE EVIL and I want to be your CLASS PRESIDENT is the best book of the century for at least three reasons. 1. Josh Lieb is funny 2. Middle School is Hell 3. Jon Stewart approves. Josh will also be writing the screenplay, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Here’s my favorite excerpt from the first chapter:
In case you’re lucky enough to have escaped it, Fahrenheit 451 is one of those books that is about how amazing books are and how wonderful the people who write books are. Writers love writing books like this, and for some reason, we let them get away with it. It’s like someone producing a TV show called TV Show are the Best and the People Who Make Them Are Geniuses.*
*Probably the name of Aaron Sorkin’s next project. Ha.
Here’s a link to a very long interview with Mr. Lieb: http://bigthink.com/joshlieb
(Full disclosure: Gail Lieb, Josh’s mom, is my favorite person in the universe)
