MIDDLE SCHOOL; ULTIMATE SHOWDOWN, by James Patterson and Julia Bergen

Image

The story: Rafe and his sister Georgia are back! Sibling rivalry, nothing: they’re putting on the gloves to duke it out over a whole bunch of different middle school topics, like their spoofs of the Gettysburg Address, their take on bullies, and whether school dances are torture or tons of fun. Keep track as you go along to see who wins the Ultimate Showdown!

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: If you haven’t read the earlier books in Patterson’s Middle School series, it might take you, like, 30 seconds to figure out what’s going on here. Rafe and Georgia are very close in age, but totally opposite in personality, so their views of middle school are completely opposite–part of what makes this book so fun. If you’re looking for a funny story about a kid who breaks the rules (Rafe) or even about a kid who always keeps the rules (Georgia) this one is for you!
