TGIF & Gordon Korman

Have you heard of Gordon Korman?  He's an author.  He's a prolific author (as evidenced from the list above...which is incomplete!).

He started writing when he was a teenager and had 5 books published before he graduated from high school.  Crazy, huh?

I just finished reading one of his earlier works, I Want to Go Home!, which emphasizes his genius at creating quirky, fun characters (see Losing Joe's Place and A Semester in the Life of a Garbage Bag).  While I do think he's lost some of that originality recently (see Son of the Mob), I still think he's an amazing writer (see Schooled).

Have you read his books?  Which one is your favorite?
And if you haven't heard of him, he's awesome.  Read him!
