How To Write Really Badly

(1996)
A novel by

 
 
Chester Howard can't believe it! He's been to all sorts of schools as his mother's jobs moved round the world, but never anywhere as awful as Walbottle Manor (Mixed). Everyone's so horribly nice, recommending him for blackboard duty, playing little skipping games at break. It's just awful. And Chester just has to get to work on the boy sitting next to him, Joe Gardener. He knows he's clever - Joe can build incredible models - but he can't get to grips with his school work and his desk is a mess beyond belief. Miss Tate's 'How to...' projects supply Chester with an opportunity, and he starts Joe on a subversive project 'How to Write Really Badly'. For once, instead of battling through work he just doesn't begin to understand, this is something at which Joe excels. And Chester has his own project - he makes sure Joe's amazing technical abilities get a class award, and creates a book where Joe can mark off every one of the 1646 days he has left of school, before he can be free to do the things he's really good at.
