Have you ever picked something up just because you ve been told the author is amazing, and then after you start reading listening to it begin to wonder if the world is crazy or if you just have no taste That is what happened to me when I first started listening to this middle schooler geared audiobook Patterson is supposed to be a genius So many people in my town rave about how amazing his stuff is So what s wrong with me Why can t I get into his stuff I knew I was in trouble when the intro Have you ever picked something up just because you ve been told the author is amazing, and then after you start reading listening to it begin to wonder if the world is crazy or if you just have no taste That is what happened to me when I first started listening to this middle schooler geared audiobook Patterson is supposed to be a genius So many people in my town rave about how amazing his stuff is So what s wrong with me Why can t I get into his stuff I knew I was in trouble when the intro music an annoying electric guitar piece continued even after the narrator started the story which made it difficult to focus on the words The reader s voice Bryan Kennedy was beyond annoying, but I ll sayabout that in a minute.I picked this book up because I have 2 middle schoolers my oldest son who now loves to read has been stuck in the high fantasy middle ages genre I was hoping this story would be suitable for him to read to get him out of the reading rut I m not sure if this book is actually in print or if it is only in audio format I m guessing the latter as the main character references the fact that he is talking to me his listener through his story on an audiobook a device I found quite annoying personally but it doesn t matter I won t be getting this book out for him It wasn t anything like what I expected.What did I expect Well, this is a James Patterson story, so I expected super short chapters Score one for me One chapter was only 1 sentence long I also expected some cheesy, cliche laden scenes and dialogue Two for two, go Samantha What I didn t expect was just HOW cheesy and cliched this story would be I absolutely HATED the plot The main character is annoying Just about all the characters are annoying Maybe it was the reader s voice that made them that way, but I have a feeling it was just the way the characters were written.I think there are a few points I should make to explain why I feel this story is so bad.1 The story is about a boy who is bored in school and decides to play a game he created to make schoolfun The game is to break every rule in the rule book I know it s a work of fiction meant to entertain our youth, but could you send a worse message Yeah, you could, but this one was bad enough And the ending made it even worse.2 The game the boy creates Operation RAFE is ridiculous My 6th grade son started listening to this book with me and he looked at me and said, Is this for writer for real Does he actually think a sixth grader would be like that The kid seemslike a third or fourth grader to me My 6th grade daughter chimed in her agreeance I just about fell over at that My daughter AGREED with her brother And what they agreed on was that this book was ridiculous She opted not to listen to it anyafter disc 1 and asked me to turn it off when she was in the car with me This from the book s target audience guys 3 More about the gamethe point system Really And the rewards for a million points are absurd To be honest, I can t even remember them as they were only mentioned once and were so off the wall, over the top insane, it s just crazy At this point, even my third grader was scratching his head trying to understand the point system and just what the point was for earning the points.4 The reader s voice Oh, the reader s voice Grating Annoying I could sayunpleasant things, but I ll leave it at that My first grader said the voice reminded him of Shaggy from Scooby Doo I disagree with that but found it an interesting comparison.5 If you look past the idiotic game plot and were able to suffer through the sound, you come to my next big issuethe ending Okay, so the kid is a delinquent who is failing out of school, getting into fights, and trying to break rules So, what should we do with a kid like that Let s REWARD him with art school Sure, he gets a punishment of getting expelled and has to complete sixth grade in his mother s diner, but he gets a huge reward with minimal punishment The supposed authorities let a family tragedy which happened nearly a decade before excuse the kid s behavior and bad choices I just feel this is giving a really bad message to our kids Do whatever you want and, no matter how bad illegal your choices are, everything will work out.I wasn t the biggest James Patterson fan to begin with, but after this story, I m even less of a fan I listened to his Witches Wizards story The One Who Is The One my hubby and I still joke about that and read a couple of his adult books, but am just not impressed I think this may be the last J.P book I pick up Have you ever wanted to break every rule in the book in middle school The book, Middle School, the Worst

Overall Blah I picked this up thinking that my 11 year old would think this was amusing since she s going into middle school next year Turns out this book is anything BUT amusing It s about a kid who decides to break all the rules as a part of a game Dumb Plus I ended up worrying about the mom farthan Rafe who I just wanted to fix In the end, Rafe is punished for his ongoing behavior and graffittiing but then rewarded for his creative gifts by sending him to art school Seriously Overall Blah I picked this up thinking that my 11 year old would think this was amusing since she s going into middle school next year Turns out this book is anything BUT amusing It s about a kid who decides to break all the rules as a part of a game Dumb Plus I ended up worrying about the mom farthan Rafe who I just wanted to fix In the end, Rafe is punished for his ongoing behavior and graffittiing but then rewarded for his creative gifts by sending him to art school Seriously And don t get me started about how the book unnecessarily uses a non character Leo and misses a very important character his sister The boyfriend only plays the role of a source for Rafe s and is completely undeveloped The only good thing about it is that like Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, it heavily relies upon cartoon graphics but this is nothing new in YA lit I m somewhat glad we kept reading this and didn t give up halfway thru which we were close to doing but the paper used in this book was a waste of a beautiful tree Sheesh Mr Patterson, stick to books for adults
