"Waiting On" Wednesday! 29

School of Fear by Gitty Daneshvari

From The Publisher's Website:

Everyone is afraid of something...

Madeleine Masterson is deathly afraid of bugs, especially spiders.

Theodore Bartholomew is petrified of dying.

Lulu Punchalower is scared of confined spaces.

Garrison Feldman is terrified of deep water.

With very few options left, the parents of these four twelve year-olds send them to the highly elusive and exclusive School of Fear to help them overcome their phobias. But when their peculiar teacher, Mrs. Wellington, and her unconventional teaching methods turn out to be more frightening than even their fears, the foursome realize that this just may be the scariest summer of their lives.

Released September 1st 2009

A few months back when I was reading the author's adult title, The Makedown I heard about this book. There wasn't too much information back then but now I've found a full synopsis! It just reminds me a lot of some of the wacky but humorous stuff I read as a child, perhaps Sideways Stories From Wayside School. It just sounds great! It also sounds like it's on it's way to be coming a movie! I wish I could share the cover art with you (it's fantastic) but it's too blurry! Hopefully sometime soon it will be available online. Carrie Gifford has done the illustrations, check out some examples of her work here! Can you say awesome!

What can't you wait for to be released?

"Waiting On" Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine!


  1. I have that book on my list too! I enjoyed The Makedown's sense of quirky humor and the title of this one - School of Fear - sounds great!

  2. I used to love the Wayside High books! Your pick sounds like a good one.

  3. OHHHH!!! this book looks really good, but I have a severe fear of spiders and I don't know if I could read about what they will do to cure the "fear" of them...*shudders*

  4. It sounds great. I want to see the cover really much.

  5. sounds like a hit!

  6. Sounds like a good one.
