James Howe is the author of more than ninety books for young readers, including the modern classic Bunnicula and its highly popular sequels. In 2001, Howe published The Misfits, which was the inspiration for the national movement known as No Name-Calling Week (NoNameCallingWeek. org), an event observed by thousands of middle and elementary schools annually. There are three companion novels to The Misfits: Totally Joe (2005), Addie on the Inside (2011), and Also Known as Elvis (2014).

Kids who get called the worst names oftentimes find each other. James Howe remembers this, and The Misfits is a fantastic representation of the whole awful middle school experience. Four friends, called the Misfits, decide to create a third political party for their school's student council elections. I got his signature on my brand new hardcover copies of The Misfits and Totally Joe. Important yoga breath moment: The idea of No Name Calling Week isn't just an imaginary event at PFMS. It's a nationwide movement.

Meet Joe Bunch. Lovable misfit and celebrity wannabe from Paintbrush Falls, New York. Like his longtime best friends Addie, Skeezie, and Bobby, Joe's been called names all his life. So when he's given the assignment to write his alphabiography -- the story of his life from A to Z -- Joe has his doubts. This whole thing could be serious ammunition for bullying if it falls into the wrong hands. But Joe discovers there's more to the assignment -- and his life -- than meets the eye. Especially when he gets to the letter C, which stands for Colin Briggs, the coolest guy in the seventh grade (seriously) -- and Joe's secret boyfriend. By the time Joe gets to the letter Z, he's pretty much bared his soul about everything. And Joe's okay with that because he likes who he is. He's Totally Joe, and that's the best thing for him to be. Here is an exuberant, funny, totally original story of one boy's coming out -- and coming-of-age.

Needed something that my 12 year old would read. He enjoyed this one. Ordered the rest in the series for him.

This gem is too short. You will love Joe. There are memorable insights in this very funny book. Finished it at 6:00 in the morning.

Regardless of people's view on the matter of homosexuality, Totally Joe does a good job demonstrating that those who do not fit the common thread are not any less human because of it. Totally Joe, while centering on his experiences as a homosexual, seemed more about the fact that he wanted to be treated with respect. Joe did not demand others accept his sexual orientation so much as he demanded they treat him as they would everyone else.
The alphabiography was a fascinating concept that seemed like an excellent project for young adults. Not only does it require them to work on their writing skills, it also allows them a chance to discover who they are though self-expression. The No Name Calling Week, which was inspired by the companion novel The Misfits, is a fantastic idea and a great way for students to understand that agreement is not necessary, but respect is. If this is the type of books James Howe decides to write, audiences should decide to read them.

This was not James Howe's life; but it may be the life he wishes he had. Totally Joe is about a boy with an incredibly accepting group of friends, a family that loves him unconditionally, and an aunt who help him come out in his own good time.

The book is a delight; a blast, a visit to a slightly different planet where being queer isn't easy, but it isn't dangerous and the hardest part is figuring out how to find your way -- pretty much like any other adolescent.

Well written as usual, and a nice sequel to the Misfits, but so far from reality (at least the reality most of us grew up with) that it can almost be filed under Fantasy and Science Fiction.

Still, I very much liked it, and recommend it to anyone who enjoyed the Misfits.

It's really refreshing that this is about a boy who knows he's gay even before he's interested in kissing anyone. That could really help against the misconception that a lot of young people have of being gay as only being about sex. I noticed that another reviewer mentioned that the speed with which Joe's parents accepted it when he told them was unrealistic, but I think that reflects more on the reviewer (or his parents!) than on the book. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and will definitely recommend to my pupils.

This is an excellent book, giving an inside view of the experience of being a gay teenage boy & finding a relationship with someone who cares about you as you are. The protagonist, Joe, is a very likable character. I enjoyed the book very much & will likely share it with my granddaughter, whose older brother is gay.

I enjoyed this book very much, for Being a 12 year old boy. I enjoyed it so much that i put down my controller for the time I was reading it. I really like how it illustrates the gay persons point of view. Although I am curious to see what this book would be like if it had an illustrator to do a few pictures.
Works as expected.
