Publisher's Summary

On the dodgeball court, everyone can hear you scream.
Justin Lucas just started at a new high school, but there are no classes in really important stuff like English literature, mathematics, science, or history. Instead, the entire curriculum is dedicated to playing dodgeball. Justin is...perplexed. Where are the pencils and textbooks? Why are there so many explosives strapped to the balls? And what's up with the barbed wire? Does the school administration really think it's appropriate to wrap the balls in barbed wire?
Dodgeball High does not seem like a safe environment for a young man. But his classmates don't care. They kinda remind him of junior Mafia dons, little serial killers, and pint-sized dictators from third-world countries. And they are all really good at dodgeball (and the shedding of their classmates' blood), while Justin totally sucks. And to make matters worse, Justin's parents are like...total dicks. They won't let him go to a different school because they think he's full of crap about this "dodgeball nonsense". Not to mention that Dodie Manson, the greatest player in the school, has a gigantic crush on Justin. And whoever Dodie wants, Dodie gets, and her BFs have a habit of experiencing intense pleasure prior to their "mysterious" decapitations.
Does Justin have what it takes to survive and make it to the top of his class before graduation? Or will he be eliminated permanently? Listen to Dodgeball High to find out, but watch out for the ball that's coming at your head!

Funny, Entertaining with Great narration

Would you consider the audio edition of Dodgeball High to be better than the print version?

Joe's narration made the book funny, entertaining and interesting. I think the print version would be less appealing for me.


What does Joe Hempel bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Joe does a great job with narration. Strong, emphatic voice with great cadence.

Hunger games meets dodgeball

Imagine being sent to a high school where you only get admitted if your parents are psychotic killers. Every class is about dodgeball and how it changed the world. Every game can result in your death. Every ball could be covered in razors, filled with explosives or who knows what. A little too much of sexual explicitness for listening to with my kids. That being said the rest of it was a trip. Well written and well narrated. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
