The mood of Nothing but the Truth by Avi, of course, changes throughout the novel as the story develops, and the mood also depends on the current character's point-of-view.  The mood shifts from energetic, irritated, and nasty when the reader sees Philip's side of the story to more of a calm, or even anxious mood when Avi shifts to Miss Narwin's point-of-view.  As the book nears its conclusion, the mood shifts again to one of irony--especially as Philip finds out that his new school does not even have a track team and he is asked to sing the national anthem and does not know the words.
