A #1 Indiebound Bestseller
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
* "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
"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
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."
Incredibly detailed and imaginative illustrations . . . add depth and
humor. . . . an enjoyable story that even the most reluctant
readers should enjoy."
—Library Media Connection
"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
