This is really a personal question that only you can answer for yourself. From my perspective, I would recommend it because I think it's an enjoyable book that shows courage in the face of knowing you probably won't win. The protagonist decides to challenge the status quo of the school, and he's beaten for it, both literally and figuratively. He does, however, show that sometimes we have to stand up for what we believe no matter what happens. I like the fact that it does not end "happily ever after" because it's more realistic. We don't always win in life, but this is a lesson the protagonist will never forget.
