Review:

"The book's . . . dynamic artwork and messagethat 'normal is boring' should go a long way toward assuring kids who don't fitthe mold that there's a place for them, too."-- "Publishers Weekly"

"Cleverly delves into the events that make middle school so awkward: cranky bus drivers, tardy slips, bathroom passes and lots of rules.... Hopefully, this isn't the last we hear from Rafe Khatchadorian."--The Associated Press

"Akeen appreciation of kids' insecurities and an even more astute understandingof what might propel boy readers through a book.... a perfectly pitchednovel."-- "Los Angeles Times"

* "Patterson artfully weaves a deeper and... thought-provoking tale of childhood coping mechanisms and everyday school and family realities.... Hand this book to misbehaving, socially awkward, or disengaged boys and girls.... It might help them believe that there is a place for them in the world, no matter how dire times may seem in the present."-- "School Library Journal", starred review

"It's a chatty, funny, engaging book, one that often addresses the reader directly. It's filled with energetic cartoons... that will appeal to your little rebel, depicting teachers as dungeon-keepers, matadors and flying dragons. Patterson... knows how to structure a plot and builds in some surprising--even touching--twists.... Rafe is the bad boy with a heart of gold."-- "The New York Times"

"There is substance as well as appeal here.... Patterson deftly manages the pace of revelations that take readers deeper into Rafe's fragile trust.... Readers ready for something else in the same vein but more substantive than Kinney's "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" or Peirce's "Big Nate" should be introduced to Rafe."-- "Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"

"A keen appreciation of kids' insecurities and an even more astute understanding of what might propel boy readers through a book.... a perfectly pitched novel."-- "Los Angeles Times"

"The book's . . . dynamic artwork and message that 'normal is boring' should go a long way toward assuring kids who don't fit the mold that there's a place for them, too." -- "Publishers Weekly"

Incredibly detailed and imaginative illustrations . . . add depth and humor. . . . an enjoyable story that even the most reluctant readers should enjoy."
-- "Library Media Connection"
