Michael Bamberger ´ 4 characters

review ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ´ Michael Bamberger Wonderland A Year in the Life of an American High School characters º 104 Michael Bamberger ´ 4 characters Pennsbury High School would be like any other were it not for one thing its prom Its spring dance is considered to be one of this country's best legacies Wonderland is the inspiring true story of a dance floor and the kids who fill it a tale of hope sex love and loss For one year the students parents and teachers of Pennsbury invited Michael Bamberger a senior writer for Sport. At first glance I thought it would be an expose of teen problems with drugs sex depression and the like but it s not It s a gracefully crafted portrait of American high school life chronicling the stories of real life students teachers and parents of one Pennsylvanian high school Bamberger a Sports Illustrated writer first saw Pennsbury High School featured on television because of their uniue prom tradition Pennsbury holds their prom on their campus and the whole town comes out to see the magnificently transformed lobby gym and hallways We are to understand that the decorations are than just an intricate yearlong art project they are masterpieces of beauty Remarkable Yes But this book is really about the people at Pennsbury who run the grade from remarkable to ordinary We get a glimpse of the commanding teacher who was the main impetus for keeping the prom tradition going for thirty three years and his growing disdain for school bureaucracy We meet the star uarterback who has a heart of gold the bratty homecoming ueen the teen couple who become unexpected parents the witty fast talking junior class president who has a knack for getting things done like getting pop star John Mayer to play at their prom even though it was only three songs This boy is also a reporter for the high school television station Bamberger favors this boy with a lot of book time but no wonder reporting is close to his heart What he doesn t include is an up close look at anyone from orchestra chorus or theatre but that s not essential The books flows well and all ties into the prom It s a fun read for anyone who wants to feel like they re back in high school Should high schoolers read this book They might be better off reading great literature but then again this is a fine example for them of a distinctive and different way of writing non fiction journalism into narrative I appreciated that it didn t read like cold journalism it was warmer Also it has positive messages like the example of the student reporter that shows us that anything is possible if we put enough heart and persistence into it
