This was my third book by Jerry Spenelli, the first ones were Stargirl and Love Stargirl. I had immediately liked the writer in the first two books; his writing style was simple, yet astonishly magical. Jerry Spenelli writes for children and juveniles, actually–his target audience are those in middle grade–yet teenagers, young adults, and adults could totally enjoy reading his books.
So Loser is basically about Donald Zinkoff, which is an exceptional and special kid. Since he was young, Zinkoff has already been showing signs that he is unique. He is unlike any other kid. He enjoys going to school, with the kind of excitement to compel him to go early to school. He enjoys learning and discovering things. He likes involving himself in wide array of activities. Zinkoff is like a ball of energy, and there is no way that he could be stopped in his conquest to explore the world.
