The narrative of "Surviving the Applewhites" alternates between E.D. Applewhite and Jake Semple, a juvenile delinquent who has come to live with the Applewhites in order to be educated by them. Jake is sure he will hate this eccentric family, and E.D., who also resents her family's weirdness, is sure she hates Jake. However, as the family plans a dramatic production, both kids begin to come into their own.

The premise is interesting, but the characters tend to be goofy rather than eccentric, and the book on the whole was just kind of silly. Not a very deserving Newbery Honor book, in my opinion!
