Jake, Reinvented Gordon Korman
A most fantastic retelling of The Great Gatsby. Jake Garrett is a former math nerd transferred to a new school and has completely reinvented himself as the coolest guy around who throws the best parties. But it's all to win the heart of the star quarterback's girlfriend. Didi may enjoy making out with Jake, but Rick knows she'll never dump Todd for him.
This is the best kind of retelling. The source material completely fades into the background while still providing the structure of the story. Gatsby fans will enjoy this one, as will readers who have no idea about the green lantern at the end of the pier.
