Continuing with our series of reviews of Childrens Books here is the next in the very popular collection by Author James Patterson. My son loves to read his books and the next book Middle School Get Me out of here! really follows on from the first book The Middle School The Worst Years of My Life. This paperback book childrens book which is aimed at the 8 to 12 years age range was published on 7th May 2012.
My son is truly addicted to reading this humorous collection he genuinely gets himself up before school nice and early so he can sit reading the antics of Rafe Khatchadorian whilst he faces day to day life in his Middle School.
Synopsis: Middle School Get Me Out of Here!
After sixth grade, the very worst year of his life, Rafe Khatchadorian thinks he has it made in seventh grade. He’s been accepted to art school in the big city and imagines a math-and-history-free fun zone.Wrong! It’s more competitive than Rafe ever expected, and to score big in class, he needs to find a way to turn his boring life into the inspiration for a work of art. His method? Operation: Get a Life! Anything he’s never done before, he’s going to do it, from learning to play poker to going to a modern art museum. But when his newest mission uncovers secrets about the family Rafe’s never known, he has to decide if he’s ready to have his world turned upside down.
James Patterson has done it again with a truly funny inspiring novel which will have not just your child but you laughing out aloud. Get Me out of here! This book follows on from the last book seamlessly and Rafe is becoming simply a highly loved character who will instantly resonate with each and every person that reads this wonderful book. After the summer holidays Rafe moves home and schools starting in the 7th Grade in a big city art school after living in the tiny hills village. Rafe actually makes a friend in this instalment but nothing seems to go quite to plan which is no surprise as this is Rafe we are talking about. Rafe somehow manages to get himself into trouble with ease as per normal. Each book seems to reveal much more about Rafe and his family and in this instalment his father is more involved throughout the book itself. Rafe finds out about why his father left his mother and their family home. James Patterson has made this kids book a little more serious than the first book but to be honest this makes the book even more readable for children because their is always something to learn from others experiences in life. That being said this book still has the humour because of how Rafe is as a child and you just don’t want to put the book down because at the turn of a page something funny seems to happen.
