Levitin's wacky story [The Mark of Conte] will appeal to any students who have ever been hassled by a school computer…. Every character is a caricature—the paranoid school counselor, scheming students, programmed computer science teacher, liberated artist mother, and psychologist father—but this zips along at a remarkably brisk pace. Just the ticket to provide laughs between [Jay Williams's and Raymond Abrashkin's stories about] Danny Dunn and Donald Westlake's adult comedies.
