I hate James Patterson’s way of writing. Most of his books have minimal literary merit. But still, he has sold millions of copies, so there must be something in the way he or his ghost co-writers write. An exception to the hatred towards James Patterson’s way of writing is the Middle School series. I cannot say what exactly I liked in this series, but for sure there are few things that got me hooked on this series.
When I heard a new edition has come in my college library, I was pleased as a punch. While the first two editions talk about Rafe and his various pranks and bullying around, this version speaks about the life of Georgia who is struggling to fit into the school which has been more complicated due to the reputation that her brother has created in the school. It seemed to me as if the whole school was conspiring to take revenge on her for the pranks that her brother played on them. What makes the story more interesting and funny is that when Georgia attempts to teach Rafe a lesson, most often than not she fails.
The way the authors have taken on Georgia was amazing. Reading her struggles and attempts to create a new image for her, something much better than what her brother had created for their family made me like the character a lot.
Highly recommend this book.
