Couldn't get past the HORRIBLE narrating & characters the characters is this book are seem to me, to kind of encourage selfish thoughts and behavior. I usually enjoy any kinds if stories, but this one.... just rubbed me the wrong way.
When Rafe Khatchadorian heads off to “special” classes at Hills Village Middle School, he faces the same challenge kids everywhere do: At the craziest time of life for a kid growing up, we throw them all into a building with only each other as role models. Once K-12 was split up into three separate school buildings, Middle School became much more of a challenge, but Rafe is suddenly finding his direction. Not only will Rafe face Miller the Killer, but he suddenly begins to notice that girls aren’t so bad after all. Rafe faces the challenge of a lifetime when he suddenly catches the football during the most important game of the year. Middle School students will love this book as it covers everything from football to bullying and a very wet first kiss (Okay, it was the dog…but it was still funny!) Patterson has found a way to make “special” classes sound like a hangout for the school’s rock stars and being nice to each other the golden rule of Middle School.
