Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Zap offers a new intriguing option for young adults tired of the usual fare performed in high school auditoriums." — PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

"High-school theater departments willing to experiment with something new might try this as an alternative to the same old reruns of GREASE and ROMEO AND JULIET." — KIRKUS REVIEWS

"A wildly innovative play that fuses seven different dramatic genres to get the audience thinking, and laughing." — PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE

Synopsis:

An American Library Association Best Book for Young Adults and a Junior Library Guild Selection, this play fuses seven different dramatic genres to get audiences thinking and laughing.

About the Author

Paul Fleischman is the master of the multi-voiced, multilayered book for young readers. His Newbery Medal-winning JOYFUL NOISE: POEMS FOR TWO VOICES is an invitation to verbal duets, while BIG TALK, its sequel, gives us poems for quartets. Of ZAP, his first play, he says, "High schools are always putting on the same plays. I decided to give them something new." Paul Fleischman is also the author of A FATE TOTALLY WORSE THAN DEATH, a parody of teenage horror novels; DATELINE: TROY, a modernized retelling of Homer's epic poem; and the award-winning picture books SIDEWALK CIRCUS, THE ANIMAL HEDGE, and WESLANDIA.
