School of Fear: Class is Not Dismissed! by Gitty Daneshvari


     Have you ever been afraid of spiders, tight spaces, any body of water, or dying? And do you think that you've finally overcame it? Think again, because the brave in you may only be phase one of overcoming your fears! 

     Madeleine Materson, Theodore Bartholomew, Lulu Punchalower, and Garrison Feldman are going back to School of Fear for a mission AND phase two of overcoming their fears! But, they find themselves having the need to save the school as well. A burglar is on the loose, and he/she's even stole Grace, a dead turtle shell that saved Schmidty back then. 

     To make things worse, a new fifth grader is joining the gang. Say hello to Hyacinth and her pet ferret, Celery. I should warn you by now, that she isn't really nice to be with. She loves singing made up off-key songs, and talks to Celery as if it understood her. And, she has Isolophobia, the fear of being alone.

     They go through countless adventures, and in the end, Mrs. Wellington's life is put into danger. Things get more surprising when Hyacinth manages to bring Aberthany, Mrs. Wellington's full grown son, back into the school.

     Just like the first book, this story has lots of adventures you are not will not want to miss. Though on the outside, the story looks real scary, the book also has tons of hilarious tear jerking moments, and heart melting words. I do have to say that I'm excited to read the third and final book, "School of Fear: The Final Exam" since the ending if the second book was a total cliff hanger, 'cause it just ended with Schmidty saying welcome home to Aberthany.

About the Author 

Gitty Daneshvari
     Gitty Daneshvari was born in Los Angeles to an Iranian father and an American mother. As a child she talked incessantly, feeling the need to comment on everything around her. While at first charmed by her verbose nature, her family soon tired of the constant commenting. This is how she found writing — it was better than talking since she didn't even need anyone else to do it with.
