(Middle School series Book 1)

by James Patterson (Author)


Discover the #1 bestselling middle-grade comic that inspired a major motion picture: Children’s Choice Award winner James Patterson has never been more hilarious and heartwarming.

Rafe Khatchadorian has enough problems at home without throwing his first year of middle school into the mix. Luckily, he is got an ace plan for the best year ever: to break every rule in his school’s oppressive Code of Conduct. Chewing gum in class: 5,000 points! Running in the hallway: 10,000 points! Pulling the fire alarm: 50,000 points! But when Rafe’s game starts to catch up with him, he’ll have to decide if winning is all that matters, or if he’s finally ready to face the rules, bullies, and truths he’s been avoiding.

James Patterson’s debut middle-grade novel addresses some of middle schoolers’ biggest issues: bullies, first crushes, and finding out what makes each of us special, all with a hilarious main character and fantastic in-text illustrations that are sure to have young readers begging for more!

Great read for the reluctant reader it was a good funny book, I could not put it down until I had finished it,  I will certainly be reading more of this series in the near future. Keep checking Professor Owl’s Book Corner for some more reviews soon.
