Middle School: How I Survived Bullies, Broccoli, and Snake Hill by James Patterson, Chris Tebbetts , 288 pages, read by Angie, on 11/30/2013

This is Rafe’s camp story. Rafe and Georgia are sent to Camp Wannamorra for the summer. Georgia is part of the advanced academic side and Rafe is part of the trying to catch up side. Rafe is put into a cabin with the camp losers who are constantly picked on and bullied. Rafe and his camp mates have to take on Duelin and his gang. Most of the time they don’t come out on top and the counselors don’t seem to see a problem with the bullying. There is a lot of humor that will appeal to middle school boys. Rafe has a huge imagination which adds even more humor to the book. This isn’t really my type of book, but I do see why this series is popular. Rafe is a fun kid who will definitely appeal to reluctant readers and your average boy.
