    This book is completely horrid Loved it EDIT Thought I should explain why I didn t give it 5 stars Even though I was bowled over by the immense horridness of the book, the plot wasn t that convincing Still not quite sure what the Grand Plan was and why it was so important However, it was still fun enough to gloss over this little detail.

    Horrid High undoubtedly makes a direct connection with its young audience Right from the beginning, you develop an emotional empathy for the protagonist Ferg as his parents are introduced the most selfish parents for whom Ferg turns out to be just an accident The book also very well defines how a poor 11 year old kid with a routine of negligence gets adapted to various ruthless consequences The book certainly reflects, what seems to be a happy experience, instead is encountered as an area o Horrid High undoubtedly makes a direct connection with its young audience Right from the beginning, you develop an emotional empathy for the protagonist Ferg as his parents are introduced the most selfish parents for whom Ferg turns out to be just an accident The book also very well defines how a poor 11 year old kid with a routine of negligence gets adapted to various ruthless consequences The book certainly reflects, what seems to be a happy experience, instead is encountered as an area of darkness which totally draws you into the book As likely said, there is no going back The book takes its twists and turns but is easy flowing with good and easy eloquence that suits a childlike reader Must say, Payal has truly lived an 11 year old boy while penning down her mind She has very impressively described details just like how kids want Illustrations are superb and support the text very well It is very visually driven Rooted with new friendships, many mysteries are solved It s great how Ferg along with his friends embark on a journey to deal with the Principal Perverse s wicked plans It s a horrid adventure on a whole to which children will relate to.What surprises the most is this story with an unbelievable end I am sure it s a book that will not let its readers down It will surely weave magic among kid s creative thoughts I say, open your mind to this read Happy Horrid High

    I had picked up Horrid High on a whim, and I so don t regret it Payal Kapadia draws you into a world so peculiar and yet so interesting Her characters are wonderful and quirky, the language fluid, and the story fun There is something fuzzy and warm about the book which strikes a chord somewhere in your heart What is one thing that will remain with you is her wordplay, especially in the choice of character names Recommended to the young, and the young at heart Enjoyed reading it.

    This book is very special and set apart from other books Most books have at least a few boring pages, or bits which we don t like Not this one Every paragraph in this book moves at the same speed, or rather, races would be a better verb to describe it, not moves It was so good I insisted on reading it late into the night till I finished it the night I received it.

    This book was horridly good in its own way Ferg, the main protagonist is a child who has been neglected all his life by his parents They find a horrid school which assures them that they would no longer have to worry about their kid and can blissfully forget about him The school itself had food which wasn t actually food, no beds and the teachers all obviously horrid, hell bent on making the kids lives miserable.Even though its absolutely unbelievable, the writing and the descriptions made it This book was horridly good in its own way Ferg, the main protagonist is a child who has been neglected all his life by his parents They find a horrid school which assures them that they would no longer have to worry about their kid and can blissfully forget about him The school itself had food which wasn t actually food, no beds and the teachers all obviously horrid, hell bent on making the kids lives miserable.Even though its absolutely unbelievable, the writing and the descriptions made it less so, and I found myself falling into the story myself The sense of friendship, team work, mischief and misery was imminent throughout the book Even though I guessed all of the plot twists in the book, I believe that a middle grader would enjoy the mystery thoroughly.The word play was incredible Example Ferg Gottin the protagonist s name was a play on the word forgotten which ironically, he was A quick, funny read all in all.Note I met the author at a book convention around a year and half back, which was what made me pick up the book in the first place She s a charming lady who had us interested in a children s book in 5 minutes However, it did not affect my way of looking at the book at all.Cannot wait to dive into the second book D
