Review: The Stereotypical Freaks by Howard Shapiro

Nov 28, 2012

Four disparate high school seniors come together to compete in their school's battle of the bands. Sharing a love for playing rock and roll, the members name the band "The Stereotypical Freaks" because they feel stereotyped by their classmates - smart kid, geek, star athlete and quiet weirdo… when in fact they know they are much more than those labels that have been placed on them.

When one member reveals life altering news, winning the competition takes on more of a meaning to each member. Scared and angry, upset and yet still with a lot of resolve they set out to win one for the good guys… will they?

The Stereotypical Freaks by Howard Shapiro is a super enjoyable read. It is based around a teenage rock band trying to win big in their school's battle of the bands.  Well written and charming illustrations sweep readers into a young adult world.  Both the younger and the older generations will be able to relate to this GN.   We have all had  high school experiences that have resonated with us, and Stereotypical Freaks brings those memories flooding back.  I highly recommend this fun, short read, it would make a great gift for the holidays.

Best of luck!
