Praise for "Middle School, The Worst Years of My Life" A 2012 Top Ten Quick Picks for Reluctant Young Readers titleA 2013 ALSC Summer Reading List BookA 2013 Hawaii's Children's Choice Winner

Praise for "Middle School: Get Me out of Here!"
A #1 "New York Times" Bestseller
An Indiebound Bestseller
One of Barnes & Noble's Best Books of 2012
"Patterson and Tebbetts have created strong characters and relationships throughout the novel. Rafe has his triumphs and failures, but he's a realistic kid whom readers would want as a friend and coconspirator." ""School Library Journal"""

"Will be enjoyed by middle-grade boys, particularly reluctant readers." ""VOYA"""

"Short chapters and a partially graphic format are sure to appeal." ""Booklist"""

"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"""

"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""

"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"""

"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"""

"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"""

* "As Patterson artfully weaves a deeper and more thought-provoking tale of childhood coping mechanisms and everyday school and family realities, readers are drawn into a deeper understanding of and compassion for the main characters." ""School Library Journal," starred review"" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This book is an amazing sequel for the first one. Good beginning, good plot, and good finish. Once you get into it, you really stay gripped. I think the next book, "I funny", will be as good as the first two. good book, I recommend age 8 to 12. It well deserved the five stars I gave it

I bought this as a gift for my 10yr old son as he requested. And from what I saw he wouldn't put it down. So overall a great buy with smooth delivery. Thanks to seller!

By Jenny, Wondrous Reads TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 28 Dec. 2014
Format: Paperback
Get Me Out of Here is the second book in the Middle School series and is just as good as the others I've read so far. Middle School is fast becoming one of my favourite children's series, and I haven't been disappointed with Rafe's story yet.

This instalment sees Rafe moving towns and schools, enrolling at a new art school and making his very first real friend. Nothing goes to plan, which isn't surprising considering it's Rafe, and soon he finds himself in trouble once again.

I like the way each of these books reveals more about Rafe and his family. His dad is a big part of this section of the story; Rafe finally finds out about his absence and just what went on when he left. It's more serious than I expected from a kid's book, which only adds to the authenticity of Rafe's tales.

Each of the Middle School books is fun to read, whether it's because of Rafe's wacky antics or some of the hilarious and sarcastic illustrations that accompany them. Younger readers will love this series just as much as I do, and now I'm excited to read the remaining two books. I hope Rafe doesn't change schools *again*, but I guess we'll see!

My son is a reasonably bright lad - loves his computer and is good at maths, but he's never been a big reader - he has been described as a reluctant reader.

Someone recommended the "Middle School" series so we bought him the first one which he read and loved and begged (yes, begged!) us to get him the next one.

So we did (bought it on the Kindle as we were on holiday at the time - he did say he preferred the paperbacks as you could see the cartoons and different fonts etc. more easily) and he read it in a day.

They are in a similar vein to the "Wimpy Kid" books and really engaged him. My 13 yr old daughter (who is a big reader) also read it ("to see what the fuss was about") and enjoyed it, although she preferred "The Hunger Games"

A great series of books for 'pre-teens'

It was a good book with a great story I would definitely recommend it to someone who also likes Diary of a Wimpy Kid as they are the same sort of thing.
