My favorite part was when Theodore was at school and made a chart. He would call or text his family members to see if they were dead or alive. I enjoyed this part because he was so dramatic. When he thought they were dead, he freaked out. Although he was not the character I liked best.
Madeleine was my favorite character because she stands out by wearing a veil, a skull bow, and insect repellent. She wore these to protect her from bugs. I can identify with her because I will do anything to protect myself from spiders, the creatures I am afraid of.
I would recommend this book to kids from ages 9-12. Even though I think the students in the book are older. I found the plot both interesting and funny. It was interesting that they had a special school for children that had fears. Also, the author wrote with some humor in parts of the story. If you can relate to someone who has fears, I think you would enjoy this book.
