Black Sheep in Exams in Germany?

Yesterday, I was left a comment on my blog by Lisa, who I assume is German. She said, "Hey Ben!!!

Do you know that your book Black Sheep was chosen for the German final examinations. Sounds kind of interesting. I think I am going to buy it to read the whole book. Hope I did well in analysing the scene.

Good luck for your career, Lisa."

So.

I had no idea. Anyone else heard this?

I'd be curious to see what scene they used, and if it was translated into German, and how that happened, and if anyone was contacted about it. Hell, I just got no idea what's going on. Perhaps another Ben Peek wrote another Black Sheepand it is him.

you always find women called cat sparks on the web. personally, i think you stalk them and then assume their identity...

how does this happen to you? is there an educational literary god that is perched on your shoulder casting spells at foreign institutions saying 'study this man, may it serve you well.'

this will mean that your fame will be guaranteed after your death. until then, sheesh, things could be tough on the fame and money front...

it's probably the film but.

yeah, it's pretty cool, hey? though i often wonder how these people are coming by the books...

you're probably right about the film, tho.

Hey ^^ I'm from germany and I actually chose that exam...
we had 2 to decide and I chose this one xDD

We had an extract about Iaso dazai from when he said that he was found guilty until the segregator said 'get him changed'
^^

We had to analyze that part... but let me ask.. are YOU actually Ben Peek? xDD
I just googled and wanted to find out whether I analyzed it the right way xDDD and then I read that you had LJ (and I have it to so I though i could read xD) and... yes xDD

please answer me ^^
