Über diesen Titel:
Rezension: Eleventh-grader Brad Gold isn't exactly the most popular guy at school these days. When Brad agrees to interject some student opinion into Roblin High School's newly proposed Code of Conduct, he gets a crash course in personal agendas. In the name of the Code, he is abused by power-hungry teachers, ignored by apathetic students, and beat up by the school bullies--two gorilla girls named Mandy and Candy who are determined to maintain the Code's status quo. When the Code is finally approved, idealistic Brad discovers that having a Code of Conduct and enforcing it are two very different things: "I am beginning to notice a pattern here. The pattern is that having a Code of Conduct hasn't changed any of the conduct. The pattern is that everyone around here behaves just as badly as they always did. The pattern is that people around here have about as much mutual respect for each other as a flock of vultures all after the same few tasty bits of corpse." Bewildered by the whole process, Brad decides to chalk up his misadventures as a learning experience and never, ever set foot in politics again.
Perry Nodelman illustrates the absurdities and bureaucracy of high school politics with breezy humor reminiscent of that in Chris Lynch's Elvin comedies Slot Machine and Extreme Elvin. Many teens will find Brad's stab at representing the student body hilariously familiar, making Behaving Bradley a must-read for all past, present, and future student council members and their friends! (Ages 13 to 15) --Jennifer Hubert
