    1. Patrick Pennington is a typical rebellious and morose teenager who is viewed with suspicion and dislike by many adults around him because of his long hair. At sixteen he appears older than his age. He gets no support from his parents at home. His father insults and bullies him, and his mother whines and nags. His music teacher Mr. Crocker and his best friend Bates are the only two people in his immediate circle who have a little bit of faith in and sympathy for him. This is the fifth YA novel by [...]

    2. The correct title of this book is Pennington's Seventeenth Summer so not sure why it says otherwise here.Probably one of the 5 books I most remember reading as a young tween/teen, I still own copies of all the Pennington books now.

    3. This begins the Patrick Pennington series, and I have to admit this first book (but not the series, by any means, which I adore) may be more appealing to a male reader. The first time I got it out from the library, I couldn't even finish it. In addition, although much of it takes place in a school (usually a big selling point for me), it is a far from happy institution and there is one teacher in particular who is vicious to Patrick (who, admittedly, goads him unbearably). At times, it seems as [...]

    4. This is a beautiful, inspiring, fantastic YA novel. When I was a teenager, I read another book about Patrick Pennington, "The Beethoven Medal". I had no idea there was a prequel---this book, Pennington's Last Term. I have found out there are also two sequels to "The Beethoven Medal". I plan on reading them too. The main character, "Penn" as his friends call him, is almost seventeen. He is a very troubled boy, with turbulent emotions and a "bad attitude". He comes from an abusive home and is trea [...]

    5. Patrick pennington is a troubled and troublesome teenager in his last year at school. he is good at games, but otherwise indifferent to school. Suprisingly, though, he is good at playing the piano, however reluctantly, and his music teacher, mr Crocker, hopes he will win an important competition at the end of June. But penn is his own worst enemy, always in trouble, and runs foul not just of the teachers at school but the police as well. This is a gripping story with great characters; penn himse [...]

    6. A satisfying taleA goof schoolboy tale, though a little dated now I fear. Rough tough Pennington is a talented enigma under that tough carapace. Possibly not rough and tough by today's standards and the Beehive school seems more like a public school than a sink comprehensive. But there is enjoyment and satisfaction as all works out well in the end

    7. I read the American edition, Pennington's Last Term, which has been laying un-checked out for thirty years in my library. I was drawn to it because I've seen the Flambards miniseries on television and read the books. I loved the author's illustrations! I shall have to look for the rest of this series.On page 154 I questioned the world "desert" as used. I am wrong, again, according toSnopes. Really, how many times must I look this up to learn it??On page 92, I wondered what kind of motorcycle Pen [...]

    8. Read for That Was Then This Is Now post. One of my favorite books from my teen years. Read the full review at: yalsaa/thehub/2013/

    9. I really enjoyed reading about Pennington's adventures, with his friends in the boat on on his fathers motorbike. The storyline about his piano lessons is inspiring and teaches a good lesson about hard work paying off.

    10. Favourite childhood author who read my first attempt at a book when I was 17, despite having never met me!
