Surviving the Applewhites | [Stephanie S. Tolan]

Surviving the Applewhites

Jake Semple is notorious. Rumor has it he burned down his old school and got kicked out of every school in his home state. Only one place will take him now, and that's a home school run by the Applewhites, a chaotic and hilarious family of artists. The only one who doesn't fit the Applewhite mold is E.D., a smart, sensible girl who immediately clashes with the unruly Jake.

Publisher's Summary

Jake Semple is notorious. Rumor has it he burned down his old school and got kicked out of every school in his home state.

Only one place will take him now, and that's a home school run by the Applewhites, a chaotic and hilarious family of artists. The only one who doesn't fit the Applewhite mold is E.D., a smart, sensible girl who immediately clashes with the unruly Jake.

Jake thinks surviving this one will be a breeze...but is he really as tough or as bad as he seems?

What the Critics Say

"Robert Sean Leonard misses not a beat as he rolls along with this free-flowing family. Even as the crises reach a crescendo, Leonard's characterizations add dimension to the production. Don't miss this recording!" (AudioFile)
"Clever, clever. Tolan has pulled off something special here." (Booklist)
"Laugh-out-loud novel....Running beneath the narrative that gently pokes fun at everything from sculpture to TV documentaries, though, is also the story of a boy allowing himself to belong and begin to discover his own potential." (School Library Journal)

    "Excellent! This is our most replayed audio book"
    Any additional comments?

    My12 year old girls and I think this book was excellent. The story is excellent as is the narrator. We have all listened to this numerous times (daughter says more like a gazillion). In fact when looking for new audio books for a recent road trip we all agreed that if we could just find another book as good as this one we'd all be happy.

    We can't wait until her next book is on audible! Yippie!!!!

    "Surviving the Apple Whites"

    VEry borig! The person reading the the book is a very boring reader. I used it for my classroom and students could not stand it. I do not recommend purchasing it.
