Publisher's Summary

Rafe Khatchadorian has enough problems at home without throwing his first year of middle school into the mix. Luckily, he's got an ace plan for the best year ever, if only he can pull it off: With his best friend Leonardo the Silent awarding him points, Rafe tries 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.

Blockbuster author James Patterson delivers a genuinely hilarious - and surprisingly poignant - story of a wildly imaginative, one-of-kind kid that you won't soon forget.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Great book

Would you consider the audio edition of Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life to be better than the print version?

I liked this book a lot. I'm now going to read the second book in this series.
I'm an 11-year-old boy who would rather be outside than read.

What other book might you compare Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life to and why?

The Fourth Stall

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I read two chapters per night.

Great book to listen to with your kids

This is a great book that I got to listen to with my 9 year old. The book isn’t long so we actually finished it within 4 days. The person that read the book sounded like a teenager and my son was able to relate to him. The only thing is it’s a comic book and I wished there was a way to get access to the book online where we could see the pictures that the reader was telling us to look at. We can’t wait to listen to another Middle School book.

Cute book for tweens

I am a 5th grade teacher, so I always read books that my kids may like. This was a cute book with an interesting twist at the end. I would recommend this to my students!
