Middle School – Get me out of here by James Patterson
Middle School – Get me out of here is about a teenage boy called Rafe who has to move to another school because his Mum doesn’t have a job. In the new school he has to overcome bullies and difficulties with teachers to understand “the truth”.
My favourite part of the story was when Rafe was busted for trying to take revenge on the bullies.
I liked this book because the characters were funny and imaginative. I enjoyed following what Rafe does in Middle School.
The story is pretty good and has a lot of twists. You actually feel sad when you realise what Rafe’s dad has been through. There are also a lot of jokes in the story and that was what made me laugh.
People who like Tom Gates will adore this series. The book’s animation is well mixed into the text to make it a well-balanced book.
