The snappy dialogue, frequent illustrations, and fast-paced adventure wrapped in mystery are a winning combination in this addition to James Patterson's series. While there isn't a lot of depth to Middle School: Field Trip Fiasco, it's an incredibly fun read, and a great transitional book for those who want more than short chapters but aren't ready for hundreds of pages of pure text. Rafe is relatable, both for how distracted he gets at school and for his bumbling inner monologue. He (understandably) spends a lot of time thinking about how to behave around his crush, and his slightly careless attitude and interactions with the others are right on target for these middle school years.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
