100 % Gleek is a digital yearbook of the first season of Glee. There are profiles on each of the major players that include what happened to them throughout the first season and a real life glimpse that includes how they got started.
Scattered throughout the episode guides are little fun bits: Principal Figgins' Dos and Don'ts of Keeping Control - "Do try to keep Sue Sylvester away from other faculty members, as it never ends well.", a romance connection guide, a Look-Alikes page - Sue Sylvester and Ellen Degeneres, and other fun looks back.
I had a great time perusing this and wanted to go and watch Season 1 over again with this handy guide in hand. I liked having the list of songs with the original artists as well as who sang it and where they were when they sang the song. I was hooked on the show from the beginning and it's interesting to see how it's tried to get better. The highlights of each episode also reminded me of things I'd forgotten about, like Ms. Pillsbury singing All By Myself in her car.
Recommended for older teens. Put this out on the tables for students to flip through. Or I recommend that "students should be hobbled!" - Sue Sylvester
Thanks to Random House Children's Books UK for sending this one!
