Kids say (10 ):

Reluctant readers will relate to Rafe and his real middle school issues in this plot-driven story. As in the first book, illustrations play a key role in MIDDLE SCHOOL: GET ME OUT OF HERE! by telling what's going on in Rafe's overactive imagination. Rafe's drawings (by illustrator Laura Park) add a narrative of their own and a complexity that fleshes out the story.

Although humorous, Rafe's antics give readers plenty to think about as he navigates his new middle school. The balance of humor and real-life issues make this face-paced book a good choice for tweens who are ready to move on from Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Big Nate books.

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.
