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.

More bad message than good.

This book consists of 3 1/2 hrs of glorifying, cheering, and even providing instruction for the breaking of rules which we are taught are simply not for some people. Then you have 30 min of lucky breaks and improved circumstances for a protagonist that does not seem to have learned any of the lessons available along the way. The message seems to be "Be a brat, have a good time, ignore school work, and everything will work out in the end anyway."

It weirdly illustrates but fails to acknowledge the problem of telling harmless imaginary friends from juvenile onset schizophrenia in a child who is clearly acting out at the insistance of a voice that only he hears urging him to do bad things. Patterson has clearly strayed far to far from his area of expertise. The bad messages far outweigh the good in this book, which is odd today when there are so many really good books available.

This is a really good book. The only bad thing is that the author doesn't really It's go into detail. Other than that, it's great. It's very funny.

Truly 6th grade

Was not the fun story I expected. It is narrated by a supposed juvenile but turns into a predictable story that bordered on boring
