Koss' book , The Cheat, is a novel about a group of eigth-graders who
cheated on a mid-term exam.  Although I thought the book was well-written
and the
characters' responses to cheating were realistic, I was disappointed in
the ending.  I felt that the cheater was rewarded for his act by becoming
more socially accepted.  The girl who shared all the answers was never
punished, nor felt any regret.  I am tempted to return the book, but the
reviews I read were all favorable.  So, am I missing something?
  If anyone else has read the book I would love to hear your reactions.
