I love James Patterson's Middle School series, following the down and out, Rafe Khatchadorian and his life navigating the crazy of middle school, bullies and all. In the latest, Middle School: Just My Rotten Luck, Rafe joins the football, putting him side-by-side his number one enemy. But Rafe has a plan. Sticking to his true (artistic) colors, he has big plans for a secret art project that is sure to get him some needed attention, if his skills on the football field don't do that first. You heard me. Number seven is a great addition to the series that I promise will get your middle schooler reading.
