"When Geordie gets grounded for lying about breaking a window, it’s ‘Stay close to home. No treats. No backtalk. No computer games’ – which leaves lots of time for writing in [his] new journal… And so begins the year Geordie was grounded, a year which the reader witnesses through the pages of Geordie’s journal, a hodgepodge of poems, diary entries and word puzzles."
