    5. Grade FOne Word MessWhen I began reading CHEATING LESSONS, I immediately thought it was a middle grade book because of the juvenile style writing Told in third person omniscient POV, CHEATING LESSONS feels like a student written essay filled with clich s, too many adjectives and adverbs, and feeding the reader a message I guessed the ending on the first page of the story.I liked the premise of this novel, an ambitious perfectionist trying to decide if winning at any cost is worth the deception.
