About this item

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.

I purchased Middle School, the Worst Years of My Life because of the reviews in the Sunday paper about James Patterson's work. I am reading it with my tutoring students of middle school age. There are a few things in the book that I don't necessarily want to plant into these young minds such as breaking every rule in the book or thinking that teachers talking to them are boring. I believe adults would find this humorous and know how to interpret it, whereas the young minds of middle schoolers may misread the message. We are trying hard to develop cooperative spirits in our students, and not everything that Patterson includes in this book is necessarily wholesome for young people. Yes, it is intended to be humorous, but maybe it takes an adult mind to appreciate some of it as humorous. Our children are already distracted and nervous, so making them more so by suggesting that school is boring and rules are to be broken may not be the best thing for the student right now at this point in time. This is my opinion. I am enjoyhing the book myself, and continue to read it with my students.

Great price for this book! I purchased 10 copies so I could read this with my 6th grade reading class in a small group. It would have cost me double anywhere else!!
