Struck By Lightning: The Carson Phillips Journal follows the story of outcast high school senior Carson Phillips who blackmails the most popular students in his school into contributing to his literary journal to bolster his college application; his goal in life is to get into Northwestern and eventually become the editor of The New Yorker .

This book is HILARIOUS. Once again, Chris has written a masterpiece. It's clever, unique, interesting and funny.
I totally recomend for anyone over the age of 14 (there are some swears).
Can't wait for the move to come out in Canada :)

Add a Summary

this book is determined to be a hit movie and fly-off-the-shelve book! this book is sure to make you laugh and cry at the same time! it is about what is happening in the school that the teachers and staff dont know about, to dumb it down. Carson Phillips uses other students to boost his application for college in hopes that he can make it "big" in the college of his dreams, Northwestern, and become the editor of the New Yorker, in obviously, New York!
