At that point he wisely keeps his mouth shut. There is more, much more of that kind of subtle and sophisticated humor, all beautifully written and extremely clever. The book is more than just a cleverly written novel, though. There is plenty of action, and there are many paths that Scott might take. Scott does mature over the course of his sophomore year while still enjoying his adventures — most of the time. Best of all, he and his friends end up becoming heroes.

I learned how tautology is repeating the same word twice. I also enjoyed reading this book because the characters each have their own personality. I would recommend this to others who have read the first book- Sleeping Freshmen Never Lie. Additionally, I feel that David Lubar should make a whole series, including Scott's junior and senior year because I enjoyed the first and second book!
Nov 20, R2geek2 rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites. It's been a while since I have written a review, but this book is a good reason to get back in the game. I was concerned this novel was going to be a flop. I was happily mistaken!!!
Trust in David Lubar to deliver another spectacular novel that is a perfect continuation of Sleeping Freshmen Never Lie, it is as if 10 years never passed. Apr 08, Ellie Kumer rated it it was amazing. This book was so fantastic, David Lubar really has a way of getting into the mind of a teen and create down to earth characters with real problems. As a sequel to his first book I was thoroughly impressed that it was equally as good of a read as the first and it feels as if readers pick right back up where they left in the life of Scott Hudson.
Dec 15, Grace rated it it was amazing. Honestly, I didn't enjoy it as much as the first-too many cringey moments in dialogue and not as many unexpected plot points-but overall still an awesome story I would recommend to young readers and educators alike. Here's hoping for recounts of Scott's junior year! I really enjoyed this book! It was very easy to read and a surprisingly good sequel.

However, he has plenty of new experiences that make for a humorous story. He has some tough teachers and struggles between getting on their good side and getting revenge, neither of which seem to be fulfilled as soon as he would wish.
His developing relationship with Lee is kind of fun. Scott is smart and totally into dozens of obscure types of figurative language, which he uses in comical ways throughout the book.

Read Sophomores and Other Oxymorons to see what truly happens next. Aug 24, Hailey rated it really liked it. I tried to read this slowly in order to savor it before I start my own sophomore year. Too bad there are no books for Junior and Senior year, but that's okay; it just that means I will have to create my own story throughout the year. That's the power of this book, for me to want to create my own real-life story based on these words. Only a few more days to start my own.

This is a very good novel and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn new terms and other things that the main character talks about and I loved how to story was and I can relate to Scott Hudson and his school year of how he was able to bring his grades up last minute and I too get somewhat inspired by David's work.
I would love to get a third book if he is going to make the squeal to this. Oct 22, George rated it it was ok. It was alright but it really felt repetitive because nothing that interesting happened and it felt like time didn't really pass because most events felt the same.
There would also be small things that are supposed to lead to bigger things but it all stayed in the same level so most of it I found boring. Again, such a wonderful story written by one of my favorite authors.

While this story didn't quite move me as much as book one in the series, I still loved its cleverness and thoroughly entertaining plot. There's so much here to like. I am really hoping for another two books in the series.
Please, David Lubar? You can't stop before Scott finishes high school! Jul 05, Katie rated it liked it Shelves: , young-adult. I did not like this one as much as the first one, Sleeping Freshmen Never Lie. Scott was so enjoyable in the first one - he was a little annoying in this one. And there was a little too much wordplay for my taste.
Sleeping Freshmen Never Lie – In Wonderland
I'm sure some people love dissecting the English language - but I found it a bit boring throughout. Mar 28, Shrijit Banerjee rated it it was amazing. I liked how the book addresses some social issues as well as showing faults in the main character's personality. The main character has an ego that prevents him from befriending his English teacher and getting good grades by actually learning in her class.
The book also does a good job of combining these issues in a more relatable way and is funny at times. Jul 23, Bella Serra rated it it was amazing. A hilarious and eventful way to prep myself for my own Sophomore year of high school. I love that it's based in Pennsylvania, not that far from where I live, and even has mentions of places I've been and the place I used to live.
It gave me some hometown pride, and a little bit of pride to be a Sophomore and admit that I do not, in fact, have all the answers. May 14, Coley Peake rated it it was amazing. The story had its ups and downs and stayed true to what most people experience in high school. Other that a few unbelievable events it stayed grounded.
I recommend this to people looking for a fun book to read. Scott Hudson rides again! The part with Mrs. Gilroy made me uncomfortable, but I think it was supposed to.
