Homer’s Iliad the classic tale of love and revenge is shrewdly retold for teens in Troy HighNarrated by Cassie a shy outsider at Troy High the story follows the Trojans and Spartans as they declare war on the football field After the beautif First of all this story of a war between rival high schools is a fine book for middle schoolers and younger high schoolers though I'll be interested to see if they actually like it There is no uestionable content it's super easy to read I'd guess 3rd grade reading level? 4th? and lessons and morals aboundSo as a teacher I would say this book is just fine for students to pick up for a summer novelAs a human though a literate human being English major this is the kind of book that gives YA fiction a bad name It is poorly written dull predictable straightforward in the worst sense of the word ie NO nuance NO complexity NO surprise The dialogue is laughableliterally I found myself reading bits of it out loud to my sister and we could barely control ourselves One football player actually says to another Need help rearranging your face? Really?It's purportedly based on the Trojan War and for the first time in my life I wished I weren't such a classics geek okay maybe it wasn't the first time I wished thatbeing secretary of the Classical Club three years running doesn't exactly get you elected prom ueen so that I wouldn't recognize all the superficial allusions to Homer's epic poem Pretty girl Elena transferred to TROY High Helen Greg Mennon brother of the football player spurned by Elena after she transfers Agamemnon It goes on Don't worry there's a Trojan Horse scene at the homecoming dance This author definitely read the Wikipedia page on the IliadI don't mean to sound so harsh; however I do wish authors saw YA as an opportunity to excite inspire and enrich teenagers' brains and lives see JOHN GREEN rather than pander to them or worse condescend to or dumb down for them
