Middle School The Worst Years of My Life by James Patterson and Chris Tebbetts
Rafe Khatchadorian is in 6th grade along with his imaginary friend Leonardo The Silent.
When Leo challenges Rafe to try to break every rule in the school rulebook, Rafe is up for the challenge.
With lots of cartoons, rather remnicient of Diary of a Wimpy kid - but with lots more text and plot, this book follows Rafe through his doomed 6th grade year. Pursued by a bully at school, and a bully for a soon to be step-dad, with a mom who works all the time, Rafe is not having a good year. But the Rules Aren't For Everyone challenge makes his life more interesting, albeit more treacherous.
This is a cute and fun read for the 4th through 6th grade crowd.
