The Dictionary
of High School B.S.

From Acne to Varsity, All the Funny, Lame, and Annoying Aspects of High School Life

Sure, high school has its high points. But it’s also full of ridiculous rules, irritating people, and ongoing drama—in short, it’s a breeding ground for B.S.

That’s where The Dictionary of High School B.S. (October 2008; Zest Books; $10.95 US; 120 pages; one-color illustrations; ISBN-13: 978-0-9790173-9-1) comes in. Inside, you’ll find straight talk about all of your favorite and not-so-favorite aspects of high school, from substitute teachers, school shrinks, and prom, to hooking up, making out, and the highly anticipated (though who knows why, really) Sweet 16.

True, this dictionary won’t help you avoid the B.S.—but it might make it a little easier to bear.
