Reviews-
  • DOGO Books books247 - When Swifty’s Diner burns to the ground, Rafe Khatchadorian’s mother is left job less so their only option is to move to the city and live in their grandmother’s house. When Rafe Khatchadorian starts 7th grade in a new school in the city called Cathedral; he starts a new mission, completely different than his last. His mission: Get A Life. This time there would be no points and the no hurt rule would apply to everyone, including him. All he had to do was do something new at least every day. That ranged from having his first sculpture class to touching a pigeon. I generally liked this book. It went by really fast, I finished it in about a day. I thought it was cool how the inside of the cover was different from the outside and it was one of the illustrations from the story. I also liked how in the book Rafe made up names for his teachers, and little stories of what happened when he ends up in the principal’s office. But he makes it seem like he is in a dungeon and the principal is some evil monster. I hope James Patterson writes more books like that.

    Gr 5-8-After being expelled from sixth grade in Middle School, the Worst Years of My Life (Little, Brown, 2011), Rafe Khatchadorian plans to turn himself around at an art school but meets an unexpected snag. The school is in a big city where his grandmother lives, and when his mother loses her job, they move in with her. Being the new kid takes its toll on Rafe's good intentions, and he soon runs afoul of the principal for tossing water balloons off the school roof onto students who criticized his artwork. The main narrative follows Rafe's efforts to keep his promise to his mother-and himself-to stay out of trouble. His dicey influences include Matt, his first school friend; and Silent Leo, Rafe's imaginary best friend and spirit of his deceased twin brother. Park's perfectly placed, detailed, humorous illustrations capture Rafe's struggles as well as his wild imagination and wry observations. The art often replaces the text entirely, effectively conveying the story for an entire chapter. A subplot involving Rafe's father, who left the family when his son was four years old, reflects the boy's growing maturity: "Like maybe if I could find out more about who my father was, I might find out more about me too." Patterson and Tebbetts have created strong characters and relationships throughout the novel. Rafe has his triumphs and failures, but he's a realistic kid whom readers would want as a friend and coconspirator.-M. Kozikowski, Sachem Public Library, Holbrook, NY
