      It was a privilege to study this play Nothing but the truth book, my pupils did not always know the contents of the play very well, the standard of writing was extremely high and I would recommend this play as study piece for both Home language and First Additional Language pupils of English in South Africa an in some parts of Southern Africa. It's Malloy Magic time! Philip's father tells him to stand up to Miss Narwin, and he does. See more I got this book from the reading club in fifth grade. The same essay that the rest of the class has worked on for nearly the entire year. Phil does not see the point in reading the classic book, The Call of the Wild, and butts heads with Miss Narwin every step of the way.

      Then he's moved to the homeroom of Miss Narwin, his English teacher—well-liked because she's fair but rigid, humorless, and out of touch with modern kids. As is typical of Avi, the writing is riveting and revealing. I did write his campaign speech, after all. The two of us would be front-of-the-line. At this point, he declines to extend much-needed funding to Harrison High School in a demonstration of disapproval for their handling of the incident.

      When Philip returns to school, he has trouble adjusting to his dubious notoriety and becomes an outcast. Phil is overwhelmed by all of the attention he receives as a result of the national coverage, and becomes stressed at the teasing by, and disapproval of, his peers. When Philip hums the national anthem, Ms. This is my mom, the woman who drives only in a five-mile radius around our home, a whole hour south of Seattle. The question is, Do we have a right to sing the national anthem in school? From School Library Journal: Grade Ninth grader Philip Malloy finds himself unable to participate on the track team because of his failing grade in English.

When Philip hums the national anthem, Ms. The main theme of the novel is the subjectivity of truth and that while individual statements may be true, taken separately they may not give an accurate picture of an event. I'm getting stronger.
