"Middle School--The WORST Years of My Life" by James Patterson

What a gem of a small book this is for kids!  Middle School--The WORST Years of My Life by James Patterson and Chris Tebbetts tells the story of a young sixth grade boy.  It is a good story about how he deals with his classmates, family, grades and other school stuff, all with the help of his friend, Leo.  It is funny, including drawings by cartoonist and illustrator, Laura Park.  With school starting soon, it's a good time to give this a try.  I'm glad I did!

Here's a little teaser from it for you:   I decided that every rule in the Hills Village Middle School Code of Conduct should be worth a certain number of points, depending on how hard it was to break. (from p. 50)
