John Ghilino writes the following about The Wave :
The Wave was assigned to my teacher for about a month. We had to read 10 pages a night. I finished The Wave in one night. This book was so interseting that I would not put it down. In our world today something like this would not be able to happen. My school is about the same size as this school. The other thing is we have a large Jewish race in my school. About 1/3 of my grade is Jewish. Something would not be to go a day without being stopped because the principal and superintendants are very strict. I would like to be a part of the wave just to fall through the trap. I am very surprised those students listened to Ben Ross. All the goths, punks, rappers, and preps would never follow Ross's lesson. He is very lucky to have students like that. I felt bad at the very end when Robert Billings found out what happened and was never able to be like that again. There are kids just like him our school who people can help or talk to them. People don't want to help because they feel superior to them. The theme of this book is exactly what happens in real life. Superiority over minority. Communism is the only equal race. It is unpopular though. I absolutly couldn't put this book down. The first time ever in my thirteen years of life. The Wave will never happen again. I can guarentee it. Hopefully people who read this book will learn a lesson. Hopefully people don't let history repeat itself. Because that would be a horrrible nightmare. just like it was for minorities during World War II. The Wave should be a devastating reality fro the school and the rest of the world.
