High School, a rite of passage for all American teenagers, can be a daunting experience. Wouldn't it be nice to have a little help along the way? George Tecce, known as The Chief, takes a hiatus from his collegiate adventures to help students navigate through the often daunting labyrinth with his signature oft-kilter enlightening comedy. No topic is off limits as The Chief breaks down high school for students and parents discussing such topics as bullying, prom, and the dreaded group project. Refreshingly unique and accessible, Five High School Dialogues is the perfect all-inclusive guide to high school.

About the Author:
Ian Thomas Malone is an author and a yogi from Greenwich, CT. He is a graduate of Boston College, where he founded The Rock at Boston College. He is the grandson of noted Sherlockian scholar Colonel John Linsenmeyer. Ian has published thousands of articles on diverse subjects such as popular culture, baseball, and social commentary. His favorite things to post on social media are pictures of his golden retriever Georgie and his collection of stuffed animals.
Ian believes firmly that “there’s more to life than books you know, but not much more,” a quote from his hero Morrissey. When he’s not reading, writing, or teaching yoga, he can probably be found in a pool playing water polo. He aspires to move to the Hundred Acre Wood someday, though he hopes it has wi-fi by then.

This is a whole different kind of book from the normal fiction novels I read. This book is all dialogue with a brief into explaining what the conversation is about and with whom. The Chief (teacher) has five different conversations with his students about respect, prom, working in groups, bullying. This is a great read for teens in high school, teachers, and parents. I really enjoyed the first conversation the Chief has with a group of students he is a supply teaching. The one student calls the teacher bro and then the conversation between the group gets interesting, making the students all think about respect for one another and their teachers. Everyone partakes in this conversation.
A great book on life lessons that can go further than the classroom. The author makes these topics fun and entertaining. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more from this series.
I give this book a 4.5 stars out of 5.
