This book is great. You get the perspectives of the story from all the characters. You can think about it from different points of view

Four kids who are totally different from each other, suddenly join up in a group. They are secretly completing their homework in a way nobody could ever dream of. What's causing all this? The homework machine. Secret gets out, and problems start. When finally, things get much out of hand, the so called "D squad" decide to get rid of the machine that caused them so much problem. They threw it, in the Grand Canyon.
Great book, it was AMAZING! It was a creative way to show the story using interviews from the four kids. I can't wait to read "Return of the Homework Machine"! Must read.

I thought this was a great book. I personally enjoyed the way it was written in interview form. I loved how Dan Gutman dug deeper into each character. This is still one of my favourite books.
